Penelope is 5 year old girl who was born with Aicardi Syndrome, a neurological disorder that has left her without the ability to move much voluntarily. She is dependent on others for all of her activities of daily living, and this includes taking her out of bed and putting her in her chair. Since September 2014, Penelope has been living at St. Mary’s Hospital for Children. Penelope is growing, and her chair was becoming unsuitable for her. Beyond that, the chair was falling apart, with many of its features not working, such as the recliner, head rest and the hand brakes. We were happy to be able to assist the family in purchasing a new wheelchair for Penelope. We can’t wait to see her in the new chair!
