Hi, my name is Nancy. My challenges with disability started at an early age and I became deaf at the age of three. I am a mom to three beautiful kids and a grandmother to an adorable 4 year. Six years ago, my life changed drastically after I was diagnosed with MS. Despite being deaf, my life was wonderful when I was able to walk as long as I wanted, get on a bike, go to the gym, be mobile with my family.  I had to go through surgery in 2015 to fix my lumbar disc and in 2016 I was diagnosed with MS. It took me a long time to accept my diagnosis.  My left leg has become very weak and goes numb so I am not able to walk longer than 10 minutes at a time. As hard as it is, I have given myself a daily challenge to walk and try to bring some normalcy to my life. 

I have become very isolated, not being able to do the things that keep me being myself. I want to go to festivals, go downtown, walk with my children and keep up with my granddaughter. I want to go to the mall, the beach and be an active part of my own life. The Alinker will help me do just that. And that's why I am asking for your help.  

I have always been very social and that is part of what keeps me going.  Socializing with friends, enjoying the outdoors, all of these things help me stay in a positive mindset, lately it has been getting harder to do with the symptoms of MS.  Staying positive has always been important, the more isolated I become because of my limited mobility is not helping me physically or mentally.

Having an Alinker will help me get back to the gym to help my mobility as well as interacting with others, I love to swim and the Alinker will make it more accessible for me.  I will once again be able to enjoy being outdoors without having to rely on my kids or anyone else assisting me.  It will give me freedom that I miss, I would love to have a dog again, but I cannot do that now because I want to be able to take them on walks.

Thank you for reading my story and helping others with #MS, thank you for sharing my campaign as well as the other campaigns, that is how we will all get the help we need from your #radical generosity. I want to be able to enjoy getting out of the house to participate in as many family outings as possible. I want to be able to laugh again!


The campaigns are about sharing. Most people have no idea what life is like when you live with MS or what happens after you have a stroke. Isolation is often a bigger problem than the symptoms of the disease itself. With the campaigns we can share and educate people, because it can happen to all of us. When we create a movement where people simply show up for each other, it might get a bit ‘safer’ and less ‘scary’ to engage with each other. Some people share their experiences on their campaign, others share their funds to support the campaigns. It is not about asking for money, it is creating an opportunity for people to learn and show up with #generosity. Being generous resonates with who we are as humans. We understand generosity deeply and when you practice it, you feel so much better 


  • The campaigns are in USD $, the $2200 USD includes the Alinker, shipping, process and campaign fees and our #AlinkerFamily support. 
  • The campaigns are all or nothing, no credit cards are charged unless the campaign reaches its goal.
  • As soon as the campaign reaches its goal, we ship an Alinker (from direct stock or you'll be placed in line, delivery 6-8 weeks).
  • Campaigners do not handle money. On disability or welfare, you cannot handle money without being penalized, but you can receive an Alinker !
  • When the campaign raises more than the goal, the campaigner can chose another campaign where we then make the donation to, paying it forward, or get the balanced paid out, the choice is the campaigner's.
  • If you want to start a campaign and are outside Canada or the USA, write an email to We can potentially get a shipping quote to where you live, and include that in the campaign goal, though we like to keep shipping at a minimum, so we will not ship anywhere beyond $250 shipping costs.

Together we build a movement of kindness and generosity, because we all need it

Why do we facilitate crowdfunding on our site?

We believe that the Alinkers should be available for everybody, regardless of income and people who start a crowdfunding campaign here, will have access to a life changing Alinker. Did you see how happy Selma Blair is using her Alinker? Her anxiety dropped from level 10 to 2 after she got back on her new Alinker. She is so happy and so on with this new invention, that she wants to create a fund to get people access to Alinkers. These crowdfunding campaigns are the first step to make Alinkers available for everybody. Selma Blair and BE are now putting their energy together to build a generous community around all the campaigners! The campaigners are people who allow others to show up generously, give them love!

Here is the Alinker segment as was aired on CBS Innovation Nation October 2019

Why an Alinker?

Generally, medical devices are a technical solution for a body with a problem.
The Alinker is designed for who we are, a whole human being, who wants to live an active and engaged life. We are a human, we have a body. Whether we miss a leg of have MS, it does not change who we are.

Yet the world we live in, treats us as a body with a problem, which creates a social divide between people based on their body, based on what we have, not on who we are. Isolation and loneliness are more devastating than the disease itself. So we need to show up for each other, acknowledge each other and be present to who we are.

These campaigns are here to bridge the gap between a high quality custom Alinker, and the people who live at the receiving end of a 'sickcare' system that drives people into poverty.

So, show up, be radically generous, it is something we humans really understand.
When you read each story in each campaign, pause and imagine who that person is, and why they started the campaign, reach out to them, let them know they are surrounded and seen, heard and not alone. When we do that, we feel better and create a safer community where we know we can show up for each other. It connects us with our essence, we are radically generous creatures, we just got a little lost in systems that are not designed for our wellness.

Alinkers change lives, here are a few people


Who is the Alinker for?

The Alinker is for people who want to stay active, regardless of mobility challenges.

To operate and use the Alinker you must have the ability to:

  • walk to some degree
  • flex and extend your legs
  • bear weight on one leg briefly while getting on and off the Alinker
  • be consciously aware of your surroundings
  • be aware of your ability and limitations

What is the Alinker?

The Alinker is an exceptionally cool, three-wheeled walking bike for humans with mobility constraints. It’s not a medical device, it’s a lifestyle tool, designed to enable users to lead active and socially engaged lives — at eye level.

On the Alinker, users sit upright -- at eye level with standing companions. Weight is supported by the seat with no stress on the lower body, while handle bars provide additional support. Feet remain on the ground, keeping users stable and safe.


Together we'll make this work, in kindness and from the heart
