Meet nine-year-old Blake. He was diagnosed with cerebral palsy and epilepsy. He is cognitively underdeveloped. He is also nonverbal. Blake has other limitations. He cannot walk and a wheelchair helps him to be independent. Blake is a happy boy despite his illnesses.
Blake is described as a cool kid with a fun personality. He enjoys reading from his library of 100 books. He even uses them for pranks. Blake hides his books and laughs while mom and dad embark on a wild Mother Goose chase. Blake is especially a baseball fanatic. His room is overflowing with memorabilia from the sport. He takes every opportunity to watch baseball with his family. Blake likes to play with a t-ball in his yard and pretend that he is a big leaguer in a World Series game. He connects bat and ball with a thunderous crack and the crowd cheers his name. In reality, his mom and dad clap and cheer each moment Blake takes a swing with the plastic bat. Hit or miss, Blake steals their hearts and he always makes it home.
Blake needs a new ramp for his house. He has a seven-year-old ramp that is currently slippery and unsafe. Please be a generous sponsor soon!
