Xena needed a lightweight manual wheelchair for getting around town. Her power chair is too large and heavy for her care giver’s vehicle. The lighter chair is allowing Xena to have more freedom. Thanks to your sponsorship Xena is able to keep moving forward!
Xena faces many struggles each day due to having cerebral palsy and spastic diplegia which keep her confined to a wheelchair.
Xena has many interests that other girls her age also enjoy. She is a huge fan of the Twilight movies. She also loves reading books and her favorite trilogy is The Hunger Games. Xena is also a young lady with spirit and she follows her high school basketball team the Red Devils. She is their #1 admirer! Xena might be considered an ordinary girl but there is nothing average about this courageous 19 year-old who overpowers her illness every day, and that makes her a hero.
