Nolan has been diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy, congenital nephrotic syndrome Finnish type, and is a kidney transplant recipient.  His family says he is also a superhero!

Nolan is an amazing little guy, his family’s superhero. Nolan was born at 34 weeks, in his early days he overcame pulmonary hypertension and right sided heart failure. Due to his challenges immediately following his birth, he sustained a brain injury that resulted in cerebral palsy. Nolan has a rare genetic form of kidney disease, he battled his native kidneys for 3 years before requiring dialysis and transplant. Despite all of his treatments, surgeries, therapies, and appointments Nolan is a happy and loving little boy. Nolan was given the gift of life for a second time this October when he received his new kidney from his dad.

Nolan’s mother says, “We are so hopeful that after much medical trauma,  we can begin to add more quality and enjoyment to his life. A tricycle for Nolan would allow him an opportunity to play with his brother and kids in the neighborhood. To enjoy riding around the neighborhood and feeling included. The adaptive tricycle would also afford Nolan to work on building strength and coordination.”

Variety KC thinks Nolan is a Superhero too!  Our friends and donors will make it possible for Nolan to ride his adaptive bike along with his brother and neighborhood friends. If Nolan’s story touches your heart, please donate to help other kids get a safe adaptive bike – Thank you!
