My daughter Abigail has Rett Syndrome and I am hoping to raise funds to buy her a new wheelchair.
Rett Syndrome is a rare, sever neurological disorder mostly affecting females. It is usually discovered in the first 2 years of life.
She outgrew her current chair a year ago and needs one with more support, especially for her back as she had spinal fusion last year. Medical aid unfortunately only covers the costs of a new chair every three years and I worry that if we wait another year she will develop more problems.
As a single mom, I do not have the financial means to afford a chair and appreciate any help that we can get to get Abigail what she needs.
Abigail is a very happy 11 year old who loves her food, animals and being outdoors. Her locked in syndrome has never taken away her joy to life.
*Funds wll go directly to Rehab Tronics to purchase the new chair*
