Wheelchairs 4 Kids presents Sarah with a new
March 2014: Wheelchairs 4 Kids presented Sarah with a new adaptive tricycle!
Sarah is a delightful 12-year-old girl who was born with Microcephaly, a brain and neurodevelopmental disorder. Sarah is described as a fun-loving diva who enjoys being as active as possible. She used to play baseball with her three brothers until contracting Transverse Myelitis a couple of years ago. As a result of the Transverse Myelitis, Sarah has paralysis from the waist down and is mostly non-verbal. Sarah needed an adaptive tricycle to help her strengthen her lower extremity, improve coordination and overall mobility as well as to get her outside with her family! Now, Sarah has an awesome new raspberry adaptive tricycle that she loves to ride! The tricycle is fabulous because it allows Sarah to have fun while getting numerous therapeutic benefits. The video below captures her fun better than any words:
Sarah is still quite the sports fan and roots for her favorite teams, the Orlando Magic and Washington Nationals. She had a blast a Wheelchairs 4 Kids’ Wheely Fun Day with the Washington Nationals this year! This determined girl does find other ways to be active with her brothers. They like a little competition engaging in a fast-paced game of air hockey. Furthermore, during squelching summer days, Sarah and her family cool off in a refreshing swimming pool. She also will listen to motivating hip-hop music while spinning with a smile in her wheelchair. Most of all, Sarah loves a hug. She glows with a brilliant energy that people adore and they cannot resist giving her a warm embrace!
