Review for Wheel To Walk Foundation, Portland, OR, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

My 8 month old son Brantley was born with Spina Bifida, Hydrocephalus and Chiari Malformation. He is a paraplegic, but has full use of his upper body. Since he was 5 weeks old, Brantley has had weekly intense physical therapy that has benefited him in many ways. While I was pregnant I came across the ZipZac chair through an online forum for people with Spina Bifida. It was something that was giving babies and children that are at the age to be able to walk/crawl but can't, the ability to move. Unfortunately, being a single mother with a very low income, the chances of being able to provide my precious boy with this chair seemed impossible. Not only was it expensive, but insurance does not cover items that aren't a necessity.
A couple of people mentioned Wheel to Walk and suggested I try applying for the ZipZac chair, so I did!
It was such an easy process and within a few weeks the ZipZac was on our doorstep.
I can't begin to describe how incredibly thankful I am to this foundation for giving Brantley such an amazing gift! Happy tears have been cried, and this is just the beginning of his Spina-beautiful adventure!
Thank you, THANK YOU!
