At the young age of eight, Lucy has already had over a thousand hours of therapy!
She was diagnosed at nine months with Cerebral Palsy w/ Left Hemiplegia caused by a stroke in utero. She has since been diagnosed with Sensory Processing Disorder and Anxiety. The CP makes EVERY physical activity a challenge. She has to work twice as hard as others just to walk, run, bike, swim, or any activity. An adaptive walkaide would not only make walking safer for Lucy, it would help her have confidence by helping her feet line up correctly as she walks. Lucy currently “toes-in” causing her to trip easily.
Confidence and building self-esteem for a young girl like Lucy is huge! (Especially for a child with anxiety.) Variety KC partners know how important the right equipment is for children with special needs. Because of their tremendous hearts, Lucy got her walkaide!  It’s not to late to donate and help other kids like Lucy to Be Active, Be Social, and Belong…. give from your heart at varietykc.org. Thank you!
