United Ambulance Donates Wheelchair Vans

United Ambulance Service has recently donated two wheelchair vans to local families. One van, a 1994 Ford Club Wagon was donated to Mark and Kathy Michaud of Auburn . For the past few years Mark has been battling Multiple Sclerosis (MS). In July of this year, Mark's condition worsened causing him to become confined to a wheelchair.


The second van, a 1996 Ford Club Wagon was donated to Manoli Swanson of Turner. Ms. Swanson was in need of a van in order to transport her son, Gunner Swanson. Gunner is nine years old and is diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy.


Both families will be using their van to transport their family member(s) to various doctors' appointments and activities that would have otherwise been difficult to accomplish without this donation. “We were fortunate that we were in a position to be able to donate these vans” replied Kevin Thomas, Wheelchair Supervisor.
