    Hey Y'all.

    My friend Jay Erwin was severely injured in a tree cutting accident last fall. After several surgeries, he is now paralyzed from the chest down. It's a miracle that he is even alive.
    I went to school with both Jay and his wife, Lisa. They are two of the most genuine, kind, down to earth people you will ever meet. They are in need of a handicap equipped van, so that Jay would be able to easily get the wheelchair in and out of the van. They are currently using their car, and Lisa or one of his kids has to lift him out of the chair and into the car. Recently, Jay entered a contest to win one of three specially equipped vans. The contest is based on votes, and does not cost anything to sign up and vote. You can vote every day until May 9th, and there is a bonus question that will add an additional vote for every correct answer.

    Would you please consider going online and voting to help Jay out? The link will take you to a page where you will see a photo of Jay and Lisa and a short paragraph about him.
    Thanks for your consideration. ♥

    The following is an excerpt from his wife, Lisa.....
    Hey Guys.. Jay has entered to win a handicap van. It is based on votes. You can vote each day between now and May 9th. If we won this van Jay Erwin could drive again. The car we have now Jay cannot lift his wheelchair up and over the seat. He would not pass the driving test due to his shoulders not being able to sling the chair in the car. Please vote each day.. I would love for Jay to get even more independence.. Thank you and God Bless....

    Vote for Jay Erwin - Deep Gap, NC in the 2014 National Mobility Awareness Month Local Hero contest!

    I will tell them. They will be so appreciative to know that they have friends they've never met.
    I wish you could meet Jay and Lisa....they are really special people.
    They both have talked so highly of the care Jay received, and of the great staff.

    This is what makes my friend a true hero....This is why I want him to win.
    I copied Jay's post from the FB page set up to support him.

    I did want to say this as well... Even if we did not win the van, it is so awesome that we have so many great friends! You have been so awesome and I appreciate everyone of you. I was thinking that when we get through with all of this that we could turn this page into a page to help other people who are in need. We could call this page The Torch...A torch of help to help a person or persons in need. When that need is met the torch could be passed to another... Just a thought.

    I came to this section because it said "self promotion" ....lost my job, can't find work (over 60) so I just started with my real estate license in Naples Florida. After reading this story I see how trivial my problems are. Visited the website and voted.
    Sundrop, you are truly a good friend to Jay and a "selfless" promoter.
