The SCOOTER Store Donates Power Wheelchair to Former Manassas Detective Stricken With Arthritis
Date:11/6/2008

Gift of Mobility is a 'Dream Come True' to Manassas Man Seeking to Improve His Mobility

MANASSAS, Va., Nov. 6 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Thomas Yeepun, 64, thinks of his 20 years with the Fairfax County Police Department as a "blessing" because he served his community. Now retired and suffering from severe arthritis in his knees and a bad back, Mr. Yeepun calls his new power wheelchair from The SCOOTER Store a "second blessing."

Mr. Yeepun proudly recalls his years as a detective who delighted in "working hard to help people and help the community." Lately, since the arthritis and back pain have immobilized him, he has "prayed that someone would help him, too."

Today, The SCOOTER Store answered his prayers. Working with the ADL Foundation of Arizona (http://www.adlfoundation.org), a non-profit organization that helps uninsured adults obtain mobility equipment, Mobility Manager Stan Parks from the Ashland, VA distribution center of The SCOOTER Store delivered a new power wheelchair to Mr. Yeepun.

Mr. Yeepun had heard about The SCOOTER Store's commitment to helping people living with disabilities. Still, when he called and explained his situation, he said that he was surprised they were "so good to me." Mr. Yeepun lives on a limited retirement income and his insurance won't cover a power chair. But The SCOOTER Store qualified him for a free wheelchair under its "Gift of Mobility" program, which provides power wheelchairs and scooters to people without the resources or insurance coverage to purchase them.

Now, with the power wheelchair, Mr. Yeepun is pleased that he can "go out anywhere" with his girlfriend and two daughters. He is most excited, though, to go out and find work. The last few years have been very difficult for him. He has been mostly confined to the house, dependent on his family and limited to watching television. He said that he "loves to be busy and work
