Wheelchairs 4 Kids presents Chance with a new
Update! March, 2014- Chance received a new wheelchair from Wheelchairs 4 Kids!
Chance is a 15-year-old who was born with cerebral palsy. Chance is not able to maneuver a manual wheelchair without assistance or sit upright without support. He is unable to walk or talk, but works hard every day in therapy. He is able to communicate with a computer and is a pro with the TV remote! These challenges can be distressing for a boy who just wants to be a teenager, but with a youthful spirit he still has fun.
Chance really needed a new wheelchair. He had spinal surgery last year which changed his sitting posture. As a result, Chance had outgrown his wheelchair which had also become painful for him to use. Now, Chance has a new wheelchair that properly fits, provides lateral trunk support, head support, room for growth and mobility! Chance is able to be both safe and comfortable in his new wheelchair. Thank you to the Margaret Heins Foundation for sponsoring Chance’s wheelchair!
Chance enjoys a variety of great music, like jazz, swinging big band, and America’s #1 boss, Bruce Springsteen. He also loves television. Do you remember waiting for Looney Tunes on Saturday morning? Chance watches these classic cartoons and he always laughs at their wacky antics. But, his absolute favorite shows are game shows like “Family Feud!” Sometimes outdoor activities are more fun than t.v., and Chance would prefer to be at the park with family and friends. After being outdoors and working up an appetite, he might visit one of his favorite restaurants, Applebee’s or TGI Friday’s. Chance eats the delicious food while engaging with the wait staff and showing them what TV show or movie he’s watching. Chance loves electronics and gadgets!
Check out the size difference! Chance was definitely in great need of a new wheelchair!
