Durham family hoping to raise wheelchair van funds

DURHAM (WTVD) -- The Mills family of Durham is trying to raise funds to buy a special wheelchair accessible van for their two sons.

As I first reported last month, they were hoping to win a national contest to get the van for brothers Jack and Luke - who were born with the same rare genetic mutation - and can't move on their own.

They didn't win the contest, but a website is now set up where you can donate. Here's the link: http://www.gofundme.com/JackLuke

The Epilepsy Foundation of NC has also stepped in to help collect donations. They have a "Circle of Care" program where people can donate to a specific cause (medical equipment, etc. ) for a family. The Mills Family now has a fund set up through the foundation, and you can mail a check made out to the Epilepsy Foundation of North Carolina and send to Patricia Gibson's attention. 100% of your donation will go to the cause. Your donation must state Circle of Care. Your donation is tax deductible.
