Getting Ulrich a much-needed wheelchair

Getting Ulrich a much-needed wheelchair

Personal message

Hi, my name is Ulrich, I am an awesome (almost) 3-year-old kid.

I live in Pretoria and love anything that has wheels on it.

Unfortunately, due to medical negligence, my life changed when I was 6 months old, and now I live with Cerebral Palsy. It's not always easy, but they say that my smile can make anyone's day better. I am always ready for playtime, hugs, and kisses. I am full of energy and even though they say I am not supposed to be able to do anything, I am proving them all wrong.

Living with Cerebral Palsy sucks. I really sometimes just want to be able to play, sometimes on my own, sometimes to follow my big sister around. So I am in need of funds to get myself a wheelchair, made especially for me.

You see, the wheelchair has 2 parts to it. The first part is to get my posture better and help improve my core strength. The next part is to make me more independent. I want to be able to play and move around and see the world. My mind is the mind of a normal 3-year-old, my body just needs some catching up to do.

All funds will go to the wheelchair. If we are able to raise more funds it will go to the doctors that we owe for their services. If we are able to even raise more than that, it will go into a savings account for future treatment.

You will be helping out a kid who just wants to be a kid. You will help improve his life and help boost his self-esteem. This will also help him chase down his sister when she tries to play hide and seek.

The funds will go directly to the awesome people at Shonaquip who will be building his wheelchair, any extra funds will go to doctors who we owe money to. Any funds on top of that will go towards future doctor visits.

*BackaBuddy will send funds directly to Shonaquip*
