My son suffers from a traumatic brain injury. He has had extensive therapy at Kennedy Krieger Institute. The therapist there recommended I purchase a specialized bike for him at home. They are very expensive so I asked Bello Machre if there was any funding I could apply for to help reduce the cost for me. A few weeks ago I received notification that the had gotten funding for the entire bike. I was in tears hearing this news. I never thought they would be able to get funding for the entire bike. My son is thrilled to be receiving his new bike next week. This organization is remarkable.
