CRYSTAL RIVER — For David Gregory, his “new” 1999 eggplant-purple Plymouth Voyager van is like driving a sports car.

David Gregory is the proud owner of a much-needed van with a hoist to lift his motorized chair. Gregory has osteogenesis imperfecta, or “brittle bone disease.”</div><div class="buy-pic"><a href="http://www.lcni5.com/cgi-bin/c2newbuyphoto.cgi?pub=071&amp;orig=0812%2BNZ_van_donation.jpg" target="_new">Buy this photo</a></div>

Thanks to the generosity of the community, David Gregory is the proud owner of a much-needed van with a hoist to lift his motorized chair. Gregory has osteogenesis imperfecta, or “brittle bone disease.”

“I used to say my other one was the ‘Starship Enterprise’ — whenever I took off in it, it was an adventure,” he said. “I never knew if I’d make it to my destination. With this one, I like the whole concept of it because it’s compact. It’s a lot easier than my other one.

Born with osteogenesis imperfecta (“brittle bone disease”), Gregory had had more than 80 broken bones, has spent weeks in traction and has undergone surgeries to have steel rods implanted in his legs. He spends most of his days in a motorized chair. Rest of the story click here.
