Meet Javier!



Javier is a happy 3-year-old boy diagnosed with chromosome 9 abnormality, a condition that causes imbalance and muscle weakness.  Javier loves playing with his puppy Chiquita, and he enjoys any activity in water, whether it is aquatic therapy, or just playing in the pool with mom. 

Javier is currently learning to walk in physical therapy, but he needs the support of a gait trainer.  His physical therapist has recommended a Grillo posterior gait trainer.  His therapist feels that he could improve his dynamic standing balance, improve his lower extremity coordination and motor planning, and would improve his quality of life with this vital piece of equipment.  Please be his sponsor!
