Meet six-year-old Jesus. He was diagnosed with Microcephaly, developmental delay and epilepsy. He is nonverbal. Jesus also cannot walk or crawl. Furthermore, he eats using a tube. The challenges do not hinder his happiness.
Jesus is always ready to begin the day with his favorite activities. He likes watching cartoons, especially a show called “El Chavo.” Jesus spends time reading a collection of children’s Bible stories. He also works hard during an exercise called tummy time. He lays on a large ball while a therapist stretches his arms and legs. Most of all, Jesus is delighted with music. During music class, Jesus holds instruments while swinging his arms. He creates a variety of unique sounds! He inherits this talent from a musical family. His uncle fingers the guitar and his grandfather plays the accordion. Jesus can sit for hours listening to his family’s merry melodies. In fact, He ends his day by falling asleep to classical composers, such as Mozart. Jesus arises the next morning in his usual fashion. He wakes up at 4 a.m. laughing. Jesus brightens the world before sunrise.
Jesus received a travel wheelchair. This is a easy to transport wheelchair that makes small trips to the doctor or therapist much easier not only for Jesus but for his mom and care giver. They can just fold up the wheelchair instead of having to take apart his manual wheelchair every time. This also causes much more wear and tear to his manual wheelchair. The best part is that Jesus has a safe and comfortable place to be, now he can go even more places!
