    FYI – I sent an email message to Spurwink Alltech regarding the possibility of loaning or renting a wheelchair, and the email bounced back as “blocked”.

    I am researching this for a brother in Houlton Maine who desperately needs a wheelchair at least for the next 6 months or so in order to get to medical appointments. Do you have any suggestions as to the best place to call in this regard. Many thanks for your article…. Marjorie
