Meet 6-year-old Emmanuel! Diagnosed with cerebral palsy, this adorable little boy has low strength and balance in his legs, which makes walking very difficult. His caregivers help by transferring him to and from his manual wheelchair, which he uses for mobility.
Emmanuel is an intelligent child with a variety of favorite activities. He is bilingual, speaking English and Spanish. He enjoys Spanish music, television and like many children his age, he loves cartoons. Emmanuel, who has a big appetite, enjoys anything sweet. However, nothing makes him smile more than playing with his siblings. Spending time laughing together causes Emmanuel’s disability to disappear.
Emmanuel needs a new adaptive tricycle to strengthen his muscles and improve his balance. The equipment requested will also give him another outlet to interact with other children including his siblings. Please help Emmanuel by donating now!
Emmanuel loves his new trike! He got on and peddled away!!! The smile on his face says it all..he enjoys the freedom his new trike provides while cruising down the street and enjoying life as a boy. Keep going Manny!
