Meet the Kids: Lexi


Lexi is a beautiful happy six year-old girl who was born healthy, but contracted meningitis as an infant and is diagnosed with Spastic Quadriplegic Cerebral Palsy.
Her mother, a single parent, keeps Lexi active, interested, social and engaged. As Lexi grows it is becoming more and more difficult to a safely transport her. They need help in getting their vehicle modified for Lexi’s wheelchair. While raising Lexi, her mom also completed her college degree, the two of them are a determined force to reckon with! Variety stepped in to help this little family who is working so hard themselves….and Lexi will get the van lift they so desperately need. The next time you easily jump in the car and take off, think of Lexi and others like her, who have no safe way to get where they are going. To volunteer or donate to Variety, please visit
