Wheelchairs 4 Kids presents Lauren with
March, 2014: Lauren received new canes from Wheelchairs 4 Kids!
Lauren is a 20 year-old-girl with cerebral palsy. Lauren has limited mobility and is only able to walk with assistance. However, Lauren is driven to be independent like many of her friends. They create youthful memories going to the mall shopping for the newest fashion trends or watching the latest popular movie in a popcorn-scented theater. Lauren really likes getting goose-bumps seeing a scary movie. Some days she would rather relax at home and play on Facebook or watch her favorite soap opera, the enduring “General Hospital.” Lauren may seem like an ordinary girl, but get to know this young lady and you will learn she is wonderfully extraordinary.
Lauren needed two new walking canes. Lauren has been diligently working with her therapist to move from using a walker to canes. Now, Lauren has new canes that she can use at home! Her mother told W4K, “my daughter has gone from a walker to these 2 canes and she is so happy because of it and it gives her independence she didn’t have before.” Eventually, Lauren’s goal is to walk independently. Lauren looks great using her new canes; way to go Lauren!
