Josiah loves to be outdoors

Josiah is 6 years old he was diagnosed with cerebral palsy and Schizencephaly.
Schizencephaly is an extremely rare developmental birth defect characterized by abnormal slits, or clefts, in the cerebral hemispheres of the brain. Babies with clefts in both hemispheres (called bilateral clefts) commonly have developmental delays, delays in speech and language skills, and problems with brain-spinal cord communication. Individuals with schizencephaly may also have an abnormally small head, mental retardation, partial or complete paralysis, or poor muscle tone. Most will experience seizures. Some individuals may have an excessive accumulation of fluid in the brain called hydrocephalus. Josiah might be 6 years but his mildstones are like a 2 month old baby. Josiah is in need of a stroller to give him the mobility he doesnt have independently.Josiah is a fun loving little boy. i am a mother of two children, financially caring for a special needs child has been tough, physically emotionally and financially. but i still wouldnt give it up of the world. mediciad was able to provide him with a wheelchail but the wheelchair does not fit in my car. i would love to be able to take Josiah everywhere i go.

this is the stroller
