Meet six-year-old Henry. He has been a remarkably healthy boy despite having cerebral palsy and congenital hypotonia. The illnesses cause a variety of complications. Henry is partially nonverbal, but he uses technology to help him communicate. He has muscle weakness on his right side and in his legs. Henry, however, uses a walker and is mostly independent. He never allows these challenges to keep him from moving forward.
Henry has several interests. He listens to country music by Brad Paisley.
He watches the popular show, Paw Patrol. Henry is a huge fan of Disney’s Cars. He has a collection of toys from the film and also enjoys the movie’s soundtrack. He likes going outdoors when the weather is as inviting as a welcome sign. He especially loves swimming or playing in a bounce house with his sister. Most of all activities, Henry wants to cuddle. He is a snuggable and huggable little boy. His family is always there to pick him up, too. Henry’s name is appropriate; it means ruler of the home. Henry, however, is the ruler of our hearts.
Henry received a Rifton trike thanks to his sponsor, Athletes Helping Athletes. His trike will help him improve his leg strength, stamina and balance. He will also have fun getting to ride outside and enjoy taking strolls with his family.
