Meet Elijah!


Elijah B Pic


Elijah is 7 years old and sadly his life began with a stroke. Now, he has a lifelong battle with spastic quadriplegia cerebral palsy. Elijah cannot walk, sit up or hold his head upright. His only source of nourishment is with a g-tube. Although Elijah has many difficult challenges he still finds ways to have fun and enjoy life!

Elijah is a fan of the Disney Channel. He especially becomes excited when watching the shows “Good Luck Charlie” and “Jessie.”  Reading is another of Elijah’s favorite activities and “Brown Bear, Brown Bear What Do You see?” is his favorite story! Elijah and his grandmother do many of these things together and they are the best of friends!

Elijah desperately needs a wheelchair accessible ramp for his home. Currently, his grandmother and nurse carry him down unsafe stairs. This is very precarious when Elijah needs to go to doctors’ appointments. Please help Elijah get the accessibly he needs so that he can have both safe transfers in and out of his home and more opportunities for fun outings!
