Review for J T Townsend Foundation Inc, Ponte Vedra Beach, FL, USA
I was referred to J T Townsend foundation by a therapist at Wolfson’s Rehabilitation. I had little faith that they would be able to help us, but I was reassured they were different. From the first conversation I had with Carmen at J T Townsend, I knew they were completely different. Carmen showed genuine interest in my son, Maddex and our situation. They didn’t immediately disqualify us because I had a ‘good’ job. Anyone with a child with special needs knows that even a good job and insurance only gets you so far. Maddex was born at 23 weeks and has cerebral palsy. He needs daily support and care to achieve his full potential. Our insurance covered the majority of the cost of his replacement wheelchair for school. However they would not cover the expense of a medical stroller. Maddex loves to be out and about but he is too big to carry very far or long. The wheelchair is great for the school bus but it’s bulky and heavy for weekend use and social visits. The J T Townsend foundation donated us a medical stroller for Maddex. This has been such a blessing and has given us our weekends back! Maddex loves his new wheels and we love the ease of bringing him on new adventures.
