Fundraising for Mckayla P's Freedom Concepts Discovery Series

McKayla is a cheerful and loving 4-year old diagnosed with Angelman Syndrome. She is non-verbal and has severe developmental delays, epilepsy, sleep disturbances, movement and balance disorders, and many other challenges. It is really difficult for her to control her body, and she has to work so much harder to do what most would think of as the simplest of tasks.

McKayla’s favorite thing at physical therapy is using an adaptive bike. She laughs and smiles, unaware that she is working on developing the strength, lower extremity coordination, and reciprocal motor patterns that will help her learn to walk independently.

The bike we selected is the same one she uses at physical therapy. This bike would grow with McKayla, allowing her to use it for several years. Having the opportunity to bike daily would not only help her physical development, but would also facilitate social interaction and communication with her peers through the shared activity of bike riding.

Please vote and/or donate for McKayla and help her experience the joy and independence of riding a bike that so many people take for granted. We would greatly appreciate if you would also share this link with your family and friends so they can help McKayla win her very own bike!
