“Katie” Gets A Tricycle!
January 2015– Wheelchairs 4 Kids partners with the Stephen R Baum Foundation to get Katherine a Freedom Concepts adaptive tricycle. The trike is improving her muscle strength and stamina.
Two year-old Katherine journeys through a long and difficult road. She was diagnosed with atypical Rett’s syndrome and epilepsy. Katherine uses an electronic assistive device to communicate. She cannot walk or operate a wheelchair. The complexities of her disability make the simplest of pleasures important.
Katherine is always ready for story time. A familiar voice telling a tale or two transports her to other worlds free of disease. Katherine also loves being serenaded. Sweet songs sung by either family or friends, broadens her beautiful smile.
