Meet Maia!

 

 

Meet Maia!  She is a very intelligent 11-year-old young lady diagnosed with spinal muscular atrophy, which limits her to her wheelchair most of the time.  Her all-time favorite movie is Avatar, and she loves watching soccer, drawing, and reading.  Maia is a huge fan of the Percy Jackson series of books.

Maia recently suffered from an acute aspiration which led to severe lung failures.  As a result, she is on a trach/vent 24/7.  Her current wheelchair fits poorly and does not accommodate her medically necessary equipment.  Her PT has recommended a new manual wheelchair that will allow Maia to safely attend school and doctor appointments.
