On May 8th, 2011 our son Gabriel was born with a rare Neuro-developmental disorder called FOXG1 Syndrome which impacts brain development and function. This severe condition is characterized by seizures, inability to control body movements, and lack of speech. While the spectrum of abilities is quite broad depending on the exact genetic mutation, Gabriel cannot walk or talk, and struggles to communicate his most basic daily needs. There is no cure for the FOXG1 but with medications, physical and speech therapy and nutritional support as well as special equipment a stable quality of life can be maintained for Gabriel.
With that being said what is needed now for Gabriel is a Wheelchair Adapted Vehicle. As many of you saw on Facebook Gabriel received a new, better and bigger wheelchair to accommodate his growth. We can no longer fit the new chair in the back of my vehicle.
