Kirsten receives her Elevating Chair!
Kirsten was referred to us by our good friends at “Julie Weintraub’s Hands Across the Bay”. She is a sweet teen who enjoys meeting new people! She loves country music – especially Kenny Chesney and cheering for her favorite team, the Bucs! Her favorite color is pink and she likes to paint in her spare time.
Kirsten has CP and spastic quadriplegia. Her bones are very weak and she is susceptible to fractures. Her left leg is 2 ½ inches shorter than her right due to fractures in the past. She also has rods in her legs and back. She is currently in a manual chair that is too small and causing multiple problems, including scoliosis. Her doctors prescribed a power standing wheelchair that will lift her into a standing position for weight bearing to increase her bone density. Luckily, her dad has good insurance that covered most of the chair. We came in to pay the deductible and the lift components that were not covered. Huge thanks to Julie Weintraub for always coming to the rescue!
