Funding Eddie's WalkAide

$6,240 of $6,000 goal

Liz C. Reel   WILSON, NC
Eddie is seven years old. He was born with cerebral palsy. His left arm and leg are affected. He has worn leg braces for 5 years with minimal change. A new device called the WalkAide provides amazing results for correcting foot drop, a side affect of left side hemiplegia, or hemiparesis. We, along with Eddie's doctors feel that this product is what Eddie needs to be more independent with his disability. Unfortunately, insurance will not cover this product. We are asking for your help to fund this product for our son.

Please check out the site for the WalkAide for more information on the product. It delays the need for heel cord surgery, can retrain the leg muscles and nerves to step correctly, and eliminates costly trips for manual physical therapy. Please also check out www.walkaide.com

WOW!! We are only $630 away from our goal! How amazing it is when we work together! Your gifts are going to be life changing to Eddie! He is so excited! Last night he walked with a flat foot for over 10 steps! This is the first that I have ever seen him do this! Not many kids get to take their "first steps" twice! Check out the video on Facebook!
