Sofia’s Story!

succ picWheelchairs 4 Kids recently helped Sofia get a highly specialized, light weight stroller called a Kimba Kruze. Sofia’s wheelchair was cumbersome and difficult for mom to load into the family vehicle. This new push chair is helping her mom transport the fragile girl to doctor’s appointments with safety and ease.

Four-year-old Sofia has multiple challenges to overcome. Sofia was diagnosed with Bent Bone Dysplasia, a rare disorder which causes her to have no muscle tone and severe frailty. Due to her condition Sofia cannot breathe without a ventilator. The little girl’s illness does not end here. She also has Hydrocephalus as well a a tracheostomy. Sofia has had many surgeries in her young life and she will likely need more procedures. Does all of this keep Sofia down? Nope! She is one sweet, funny, smart little girl!

Sofia enjoys most pleasures just like any other kid her age. Disney inspires her to smile while wishing upon a bright star. Her favorite character is Minnie Mouse and she watches the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse. She also listens to fun music. Turn on a song and Sofia will move to the rhythm. Some people dance like there’s no tomorrow. Sofia dances like each movement is a cure. Keep dancing, happy girl!
