MONSON, MA (WGGB/WSHM) - An update to a story Western Mass News first brought you at the end of May.

A 10-year-old boy from Monson is in need of a wheelchair accessible van.

Jason Harris has muscular dystrophy.

He has a motorized wheelchair that allows him the independence to get around on his own, but his parents don't have the proper van to transport him in it.

Jason's physical therapist, who organized a fundraiser, tells Western Mass News they found a van, but are still about $5,000 short.
