Bumps in the Road won’t stop Belle’s Bus!

October 25, 2018

She currently is fighting off some kidney stones & a bacterial trach infection. But these “bumps in the road” do not steal her joy! She loves to flash her cheesy grin for her friends and family! Belle will be celebrating her 6th birthday in January, and already has her birthday theme planned, this year it will be “Queen B!”

Belle’s Mom Laurel shared just how life changing receiving the van has been for Belle: 

"Wow, this van. Or should I say, the Belle Bus. It has beyond changed Belle’s life & our lives. It has been almost 2 years since we received it. There isn’t a day that goes by that aren’t beyond thankful for this ultimately life changing gift. The Belle Bus represents so much love for our family. Not only does this van allow for an easy transition from home to appointments, therapies & follow ups it represents freedom & comfort for our Belle. We have the ability to just load her up in her wheelchair & GO! No unloading her chair, reattaching supplies, wheelchair parts, and taking Belle in and out of a car seat. Most importantly it provides Belle with the safety to ride comfortably. Belle has such a rare and extreme form of muscular dystrophy that she is prone to fractures. When she was only 18 months old she suffered a femur fracture from lifting her in and out her car seat. So, Chive charities thank you again for this life changing gift. It has blessed our family beyond words. We are in such a transitional point in our lives that we would have never been able to afford this van on our own. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. I wish I could say more but know that this van will forever be loved on and appreciated every time we ride in it. “
