Need support

. My name is Amber Lawson and I’m writing you because I don’t know where to turn but I’m disabled and live on my own and I have been waiting on my new wheelchair because my old one broke about 6 months ago and they ordered me a new wheelchair 4 months ago they said they are still waiting for medical to pay for it. I am using a wheelchair that hurt me because I can’t sit up right in it. It doesn’t have the support in it like I need to be able to sit up straight. I was wondering if you could do anything to help get things moving faster so I could get my new wheelchair soon thanks Amber
