Fundraising for Rhiannon T's Freedom Concepts Discovery Series

Rhiannon is so happy and works so hard to do the things that come so easily to her identical twin sister, such as walking, sitting, and talking. They were affected by Twin to Twin Transfusion Syndrome, so Addison is perfectly healthy, but sweet Rhiannon has cerebral palsy, microcephaly, epilepsy, and kidney disease. She's never let it stop her from being amazing!
When Rhiannon rides the bike at therapy, she is so happy, and the cycling motion helps break up her spasticity, too. She is pure sunshine, and she deserves to have fun while she’s working on her strength. I want to be able to let her ride her bike down the street, just like her sister and brother do, and see how happy she is to be just like them.

The picture of the girls riding together makes me so happy! The bike we're hoping to get is just like this one that she uses at therapy! We also will be scheduling an adductor resectioning surgery with Shriner's as soon as they get word from the nephrologist about what they need to do. This will, hopefully, keep her hip from coming out of the joint more and reduce the spasticity in her legs. The bike will be SO GREAT for recovery exercise!
