Her favorite outing is simply going to her backyard and playing on the swings. Rachel likes learning about many subjects in school. She is determined to succeed and never takes no for an answer. Rachel is social, even though she cannot talk to people. Most of all, this sweet girl has the cutest smile in the world. She can light up the darkest room and warm the coldest heart. Meet Rachel and discover the meaning of beautiful.
Rachel needed an adaptive tricycle to help her ability to walk by promoting better leg strength and stamina. She will also have fun riding the trike to explore the outdoors. With the help of a grant through Asofsky we were able to help Rachel obtain her trike!
