Leighanne gets a new Bronco Gait Trainer!


Leighanne is a five-year-old little girl who was diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy and Epilepsy.  She is a bright-eyed kid with a smile that lights up the room! She needed a walker that would optimize her mobility and strengthen her legs.

Wheelchairs 4 Kids partnered with the Knights of Columbus’, Grand Knight Dave Kanaszka and Deputy Grand Knight Bob Bielicki of Council 14178, to get a bright purple Bronco Gait Trainer for Leighanne.  She loved the color, as it is the same color of Barnie the lovable dinosaur, whom she adores!

Once Leighanne’s mom, Priscilla, and her Physical Therapist Megan had her ready to go in her new walker, Leighanne was all smiles! Her eyes lit up and she was smiling ear to ear as her mom helped her along.  I look forward to hearing more about her success in mobility as she gets more use out of her new equipment.

There’s no better feeling in the world than seeing the joy on a child’s face as they take those first steps forward!
