Hunter Needs a New Chair!

 

Hunter caught a common cold, now is paralyzed in 4 limbs and body because of a disease called Acute Flacid Myelitis... Hunter is being released and needs a Chair.

 

Hunter has captured the hearts of all the medical and therapy staff on the rehab unit. He is the most hardworking 19 month hold we have ever met. Due to his diagnosis, he has paralysis in both arms, his trunk, and both legs, with improving movement in his right arm. He is the perfect candidate for a power wheelchair so he has some form of mobility however with that type of device comes increased cost (transportation of the device, home set-up, ramp completion, etc). Doing My Part could help drastically by allowing this family to have an adaptive stroller for positioning during play/feeding, transportation to medical appointments, and ventilator management. Hunter has a 5 month old sister, along with 4 other siblings, so Do Your Part could help this family out in a huge way!
