Waterloo man with muscular dystrophy on his own to buy mobilty equipment

A Waterloo man says a gap in the province’s support system has left him having to ask friends, relatives and strangers for money so he can afford a device he needs to something most people take for granted.

Josh Kortleve has Duchenne muscular dystrophy. Over time, it has weakened his muscles to the point where he can no longer use his arms or legs.

Through the Ontario Disability Support Program, the province pays for him to have a ventilator and a wheelchair.
