We did it!!! We would like to thank you all from the bottom of our hearts for the generous support that has made this dream a reality! Very soon Ailana will receive her “Freedom Cart” and our little trio will be zooming around, out and about soaking up the delicious sun with joy and gratitude.


Thank you, thank you, thank you!

----------------------

My beautiful daughter, Ailana Mai, will turn 20 this July, and right behind this celebration will have been one of the most challenging years of her, and our little family's life. She was born with a rare form of brain malformation that leaves her fully dependent on me for all her needs. We have gone through it all together. No matter how challenging life has been she always wakes up with a smile larger than the sky and I have always tried with all my heart to give her as many enjoyable experiences as possible for a person with such profound physical and cognitive challenges.  

This past year my daughter has endured many things, including losing the ability to eat through her mouth, and as a result, had a g tube placed in her abdomen. Prior to the pandemic she also has tendon lengthening surgery as her body continues to become more painfully spastic. Two major surgeries in one year and I had to leave job to care for her ever-increasingly complicated medical needs, (and my toddler son) full time. 

We are in great need of this Convaid Rodeo to help her (and my family of three) get out and experience the world again. From all the years of caregiving I have a bad back and wrist, so pushing her extremely heavy wheelchair is unbelievably difficult, especially up ramps. This Rodeo with its recline and tilt-in-space would be ideal being that she has a g-tube and the lightweight nature of the chair can make it possible for me to push her and lift it into the car. 

I went to school for cell biology, and several years ago worked in research for cancer immunotherapy.  With my daughter's current needs, at this point, I cannot return to work and therefore cannot afford to purchase the Rodeo on my own, and it is not covered by insurance. 

Thank you for taking the time to read our story and any help would be utterly appreciated!
