Meet 18-year-old Joshua. He was nine months old when doctors diagnosed him with cerebral palsy. He is cognitively underdeveloped and nonverbal as a result of the illness. Joshua also is confined to a wheelchair which he can maneuver with some guidance. He is a happy boy despite these limitations.
Joshua enjoys a few activities that bring fun to his life. He listens to a genre of Latin music known as Rancheras—his favorite singer is Lalo Mora. Joshua often hums along with songs or makes beeping sounds in time with the beat. He enjoyed being social at school, but his favorite topic was music class. Joshua also looks forward to taking strolls at the park or playing ball with his family. In fact, family is the most important thing to Joshua. He is the brightest center of their love, and they are the reason he shines so brightly.
Joshua needs an adaptive tricycle to improve his leg strength, stamina, and balance. The trike will help the boy to reach his goal. He hopes to eventually be more independent by using his gait trainer. Please be his sponsor!
