The Ramirez Family
Ashley 13, Anthony 5, Nathan 6 and Vanessa 5
Ashley age 13
The Ramirez Family has never been able to travel together as a family unit. Doctors appointments and other family functions are logistically difficult to accomplish. They are in need of a large wheelchair accessible van that can hold three wheelchairs. The cost of a used van that accommodate three wheelchairs plus the other family members is upwards of $30,000. Muriel's Angels is actively raising funds to meet the needs of this family.

Hi, my name is Andrew Porras, I'm 19years old. I can't walk or talk, but I have a big smile on my face. I have cerebral palsy with a seizure disorder. I love going to Hope School and. I love traveling everywhere with my grandma. She raised me. When I was little, my wheel chair was small and my grandma could manage me. Now that we are both older it is hard to go anywhere as our transportation has become almost impossible. We heard about your organization, Murial's Angels. hoping that you would consider us, we need your help..That would be a blessing as it would enable us to to travel for my Dr Apts and other travel needs...thank you for considering us.🙏🙏🙏
OUR RECENT COMPLETED PROJECT FEBRUARY 2021
The Perez Family Receives their Converted Van for Wheel Chair Access.
In February 2021, Muriel's Angels, with support from Aero Mobility brought the Perez families dream to fruition. We could not have done this without the support of our doner's.
Sandra Perez is probably one of the cutest and smartest little 12-year-old girls you will ever come across. Little Sandra, was born with Spinal Bifida Hydrocephalus, a condition where the spinal column fails to develop properly resulting in damage to the spinal cord and the nervous system.
The Santos Family Gets a New Van and the Ability to Travel Together for the First Time
In October 2020, Muriel's Angels, with support from Aero Mobility gifted a customized van for the Santos Family. Maria and Samantha Santos both suffer from Muscular Dystrophy and are confined to their wheelchairs. Their new van is equipped for both wheelchairs.
Testimonial from the Principal of Hope School:
I can't begin to tell you what an impact you are having on families with children with disabilities. Because of your generosity, Logan now has a new wheelchair that is designed to meet his needs, and Zachary has a new van that allows him to get from place to place with ease. Thank you for the good work you are doing in support of families and individuals with special needs. You are truly inspiring and are influencing lives around you! Best regards to Muriel's Angels and your continued good work toward others.
