Amy Makar is a 10-year-old girl who always watched when her friends and other kids were riding their bikes. Now with her Freedom Concepts bike, she can be like any other kid.
Amy has spina bifida, a birth defect that occurs when the spine and spinal cord don’t form properly. Because of her diagnosis, Amy has no use of her legs and can’t move them on her own.
“She can walk with bracing,” said her mother, Jennifer. “Lots and lots of bracing.”
Karter was born with severe spastic quadriplegia, a form of cerebral palsy. From the moment he was born, the doctors didn’t think he had any chance of surviving. At first, they said he wouldn’t survive a day. And then they said five days. And then they said a year. But Karter proved them wrong.
Karter is unable to walk or speak, but he can eat in small amounts and is currently learning how to communicate by controlling his eye-tracking tablet. The tablet acts as a great way for him to play with his two sisters and get involved in family activities.
