Look at that smile! It’s absolutely contagious.
Meet Alicia, the girl behind the smile. Alicia was diagnosed with Periventricular Leukomalacia, Quadriplegic Spastic Cerebral Palsy, Dystonia, and Cortical Visual Impairment
Her family claims that Alicia is their hero. She was born at 31 weeks and received this diagnosis at age one. Since then she has been in
daily therapy to overcome all her challenges. She has worked with First Step and CCVI and made great progress. She currently attends ECC in Liberty daily and has Therapy at Ability KC where she is learning
to walk. The adaptive bike they have applied for will help improve her muscle memory as well as allow her to be outside and feel independence. Until now, Alicia has always had to be the passenger and watch her sister walk, run and ride outside. This will allow her to play side by side, branch out and meet new friends, and best of all – it will let everyone see her smile.
Every child deserves a bike! Please help kids like Alicia to get theirs – donate today at www.varietykc.org/donate Thank you!
