September 2018 Recipients
The Foote family from Hamilton received $7,429.55 towards an adaptive trike for their special needs daughter, McKenna.
McKenna has Angelman syndrome, a disorder that primarily affects the nervous system. As a result, she has global development delay, generalised hypotonia (low muscle tone), and planovalgus deformities in her feet. Fatigue and seizures are also ongoing for McKenna.
The trike will allow McKenna to actively participate in everyday life with her family and peers as well as support both her mental and physical health.
