Meet April, We recently were able to pick up the RGO's for April and WOW!! She was so excited to get her new RGO's. We can't thank you enough for your help in purchasing them. April is using her RGO's at school, in the home and in the community. We usually go to our local Walmart every weekend for a walking shopping trip.
The orthotics made the back extra high for her since she cannot wear her TLSO at the same time. The RGO's fit beautifully and allow her to walk, sit with them on when needing a rest and return to walking or standing.
We are so pleased to get her upright and walking again.
Putting smiles on kids faces is what we are all about at Lori's Voice!
Yes it is that time of year again. Many people think of the Holiday season as a time of giving, and of course it is. But for Lori’s Voice we are in the giving spirit all year long. The smiling faces we see on the kids we have helped make it look like Christmas morning all year long. Reading this blog will give you a feeling for the variety of assistance we have provided in the last few months.
An elevated seat for a wheelchair, lumber for a handicap ramp, a specialized stroller, assistance in purchasing a handicap van, an iPad, a lift chair – we could go on and on. Lori’s Voice continues to touch the lives of many special needs children, as well as their families, thanks to your generous support.
Wilder has been finding it harder and harder to do everyday things. It wasn’t that long ago that going up and down the steps was not that tough for the 9 year old.
Unfortunately his Duchenne muscular dystrophy is starting to take away some of his mobility. Getting in and out of his home was becoming difficult and his parents decided to build a handicap ramp.
They reached out to us for help with the cost. We pitched in with the purchase of the ramp lumber and Dad is providing the labor to make it happen. The weather has cooperated and Wilder will be using his new entry ramp soon. We were pleased to be able to help Wilder in this small but important way as his issues increasingly impact his daily life.
