Getting around can be an incredible challenge for disabled children and their families.
But thanks to a generous donation, some Brevard kids now have their own special wheelchairs that are opening up their world.
Three-year-old Madison is thrilled. She now has her very own Dynamic Stander and is she ever dynamic now!
The little girl suffers from Spina Bifida, and her legs are not very strong.
She's even broken a couple of bones. Her other chair is used and actually broke.
"She needs to be upright to explore her environment cognitively. As you can see she's a bright little girl," said Fran Robinson, Madison’s mother.
The group Wheelchairs 4 Kids of Tarpon Springs dropped off six donated chairs Monday to Melbourne's Ability Plus Therapy.
Each chair is a custom fit for the children, who can quickly outgrow one before grants or insurance programs provide a replacement.
The special wheelchairs can cost anywhere from a few hundred dollars to several thousand dollars, making that need even greater.
"There are so many aspects of these children's lives we don't think about,” said Madeline Robinson of Wheelchairs 4 Kids. “You can't get through the bathroom door. Can't get upstairs in your house. Can't transport your child."
Little Madison isn't having trouble getting around now, she picked it up right away.
All due to generous donors who are helping these kids go mobile easier.
"It's here,” Robinson said. “I can't believe it."
