Foundation Project – Mobility for Andrew

Posted on Dec 1st 2015 by in Projects

Lions Club of Grange and the Australian Lions Foundation give the gift of  independance

Lions Help AndrewAndrew is 6 years old and suffers from cerebral palsy, epilepsy and mild autism.
Despite these challenges his development has continued to surprise his family and therapists.
With extensive education programs, physio and swimming pool therapy, Andrew took his first steps in August 2008. Since then he has progressed to walking short distances unaided, but tires easily and still uses a wheelchair.

In the belief that a modified tricycle would provide great therapy and help Andrew to continue to improve his strength, mobility and independence, the Lions Club of Grange (201C1) with some help from the Australian Lions Foundation provided Andrew with a specially modified tricycle.

 

Lions Help AndrewWhen he had his first ride it was hard to know who was the most excited – Andrew, or his parents and his sisters as they helped him cycle around.
