ALS fighter purchases car for $1

By  | 

GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. It is not something that happens every day, but Wednesday the Kissner family bought a car for a dollar, thanks to the Keenan Van Foundation.

Bill Kissner suffers from ALS and on Wednesday the Keenan Van Foundation made it significantly easier for him to get around. His family was present when he was given an almost brand new car that is wheelchair accessible for the affordable cost of one dollar.

“He'll be able to get out instead of being homebound, and we just will be able to spend more time together as a family,” said his daughter Judy Kissner.

This is the second car the Keenen Van Foundation has sold for a dollar. The foundation is donation based, working to help make transportation for those with ALS easier.

In a few weeks Bill Kissner's grandson is getting married. Now with the new vehicle the family says it will be significantly easier for them to transport him to the ceremony so he can participate in the wedding.
