Help me win a wheelchair van.

As some of you may be aware, I was diagnosed with ALS (Lou Gehrig's Disease) in 2008 and have spent my entire photographic "career" dealing with the disease and steadily becoming more and more immobile and less and less able to the thing I love doing, namely getting out and taking photos with all my beloved old Pentax film cameras. As I'm nearly wheelchair bound, getting around is becoming a much bigger problem as traveling with a powerchair requires special wheelchair access vans that are very expensive.
This month is Mobility Awareness Month and my wife was nominated as a Local Hero and entered in a contest where we could win a new wheelchair access van.
You can read about her and vote for her (if you like) here Tiffany Allen | Mobility Awareness Month - Vote For Me!
If you use the promo code "866" it will give her 5 votes instead of one for one time only. Also, if you like, you can vote every 24 hrs.


Thank you all,

Colton

P.S. The photo of me and my wife on the voting page was taken with my Pentax MZ-S and FA 43/1.9 ltd, and Kodak Gold 100

I voted yesterday and used the code I will try to do it again as often as I can (without the code as it only works once). I have my own mobility challenges so I understand how important this is to you. Good Luck!
