Bling My Wheelchair Wheels - Custom Power Wheel Covers: My daughter has used a wheelchair for many years now and we have always found ways to make it look interesting based on what we are doing.

Examples would be weddings, school colors and letters, Race for the Cure, or holidays like Valentines Day. Please call me or email for details. Vicki Lezon at [email protected] or 440-967-1016.
