Challenge

Edie has severe health issues icluding a heart condition, scoliosis, hyper mobile joints, low muscle tone and is non verbal with significant learning difficulties. Despite all this she is a sensory seeker and tries anything and everything and you couldn't meet a more happy joyful little person. The family require an all-terrain wheelchair to enable them to get out and about with Edie.

Long-Term Impact

The long term benefits for the family is that the wheelchair will cover Edie as she gets older and enabling the family to continue to give as normal a life as is possible to Edie.
