Faith’s Cheerleading Fun!

November 12, 2018

Faith is now 11 years old!

Faith is quickly becoming a busy pre-teen. She recently participated in Cheerleading camp and love it! Faith enjoyed chatting with the other cheerleaders and cheering on the football team.  Faith’s Mother Gina shared that "Faith does not see herself in a wheelchair or with a trach or a disability. She probably will never be on a varsity cheer squad but she was last night. And she was so excited to see her friends and live our her cheerleading dream.” 

Now that Faith is older and maintains a hectic schedule, Faiths family is working to fundraise for a Auto Access Seat for her. Gina shared that "This seat can go to ground level so the person can transfer out of their chair to the seat and automatically go back into the van. This is our dream and it would make things so so so much easier for all of us. We have appointments, therapies, and trips to the stores but transporting Faith into the van is a struggle. And honestly being that Faith is 11 and it’s embarrassing to her that basically we have to have so many people grab her to get her into the seat. I have to admit I have cried because I can’t do it anymore and I don’t want her to feel like she is burdening me because I am her mom and that’s what I am here for.  I am happy she wants to go and participate in therapy or social events now. Just getting her in and out of the van is so hard. That’s why I am started to fundraise for her Auto Access Seat.”
