Our son, Roan, has spastic CP and requires a gait trainer in order to walk. Please help?

Our son, Roan, is an eight year old little boy with quadriplegic, spastic, cerebral palsy. He is a loving, bright and happy child. His disability confines him to a wheelchair. He has only limited use of his right hand and no use of his left. As a result his activities are severely restricted. He takes great joy in listening to music and he loves reading. Two years ago Roan had the great gift of walking. Each evening we would go for a stroll around our block. This was made possible by the use of a Rifton Pacer gait trainer. There were so many great benefits to having this activity. Cardiovascular strengthening, hamstring lengthening, increased bone density and the pure joy of a child being able to take a walk like any other child. Unfortunately this wonderful opportunity was stripped away from us as Roan grew taller. A medium Rifton Pacer gait trainer would bring this all important mobility back into Roan's life.
