#Wyostrong: Sheridan family receives new handicap van after theirs was stolen in Denver

#WyoStrong stories, brought to you by Wyoming Community Bank, highlight Wyoming perseverance, ingenuity, creativity and resilience.

The Fischer family was receiving medical treatment for their son’s in Denver when their handicap-accessible van was stolen. After hearing about the family’s situation members from the Cowboy Skill Game rallied together and were able to give the Fischer’s a new van.

Ira and Yvonne Fischer’s son Lane was born with down syndrome and because of their son’s health conditions, requires the family to be in Denver multiple times of the year for medical treatment.

When Leslie George, Cowboy Skill Game member heard about the family’s situation she called upon the program operators and raised money to get the family a new van.

“Together, the group pooled and sourced to find the family a new van,” George said.

Cowboy Skill Game is a group of Wyoming-based amusement and coin-op vending companies that offer legal skill games to restaurants and bars across the state.

Other Wyoming businesses partnered with Cowboy Skill Game such as, AutoFarm Castle Rock car dealership located Evanston, Wyoming which found an upgraded handicap-accessible van for the family in Indiana. Midway Auto and RV, based out of Worland, offered to fly-out and drive the van west to Wyoming. While Fremont Motors Sheridan offered to pay a year’s worth of Fremont Care Service maintenance.

Although this project isn’t traditionally apart of what CSG’s does, this charitable effort takes a big burden off of the family’s day to day life and embodies the goodness of those in Wyoming.
