Dillon gets a portable ramp from

Wheelchairs 4 Kids!


Dillon with ramp!

March 2014- Dillon received a new portable ramp!

Dillon is an eight-year-old boy who has Cerebral Palsy  and Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy.  Dillon’s mom describes him as a free-spirited boy who never gives up despite multiple disabilities.  Dillon’s muscles are gradually deteriorating and simple tasks are proving more challenging. Dillon can no longer maneuver a manual wheelchair and recently got a power wheelchair.

Previously , his family was unable to transport his new power wheelchair.  Now, they have a portable ramp for their minivan so they can get his power wheelchair into their vehicle. The ramp will allow Dillon and his family the ability to get out more and enjoy fun activities with family and friends! Yay Dillon!

Dillon enjoys many activities for boys his age. He gets excited watching wrestling and the physical mayhem within the squared-ring.  He also is a huge football fan. Dillon always roots for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Denver Broncos. Sometimes he wants to get interactive and throws the football with family and friends when his strength is up.  Nothing goes better with sports and energizing fun like Dillon’s favorite foods, Papa John’s pizza or mac and cheese! This boy’s hunger is surpassed only by his will to persevere. He teaches a lesson that all adults should learn. Dillon never takes for granted the fragile gift of life.
