Meet Ximena!


Ximena R Pic

Ximena is a 20-year-old who has Generalized Seizure Disorder and is Autistic. As a result, Ximena has a restricted range of motion and lack of mobility. Furthermore, she is hypersensitive and cannot verbally communicate and thus sadly she is incapable of much social interaction.  Ximena is in need of a manual wheelchair so she can be safely transported and have greater mobility.  Currently, Ximena does not have a safe method of mobility outside of her home. 

Despite Ximena’s difficulties, she has a cheerful spirit. One thing that always makes Ximena happy is music! She really enjoys watching musicals and listening to the radio but by far her favorite music is by Carlos Vives.  Ximena also enjoys books with the loveable and famous red puppy, “Clifford the Big Red Dog.” 

Ximena’s mom is in need of help to care for her and they will significantly benefit from getting a wheelchair.  Ximena’s quality of life will improve as she will be able to move safely and comfortably to get around during appointments, family gatherings and other social activities.
