Making a Difference for King Anthony
$550 of $550 goal
He attends the Ann Storck Center Early Intervention Preschool where he receives Occupational, Speech and Physical therapy on a consistent basis. He is fed via a g-tube; however he does accept pureed foods that he likes. He has a smile and beautiful bright wide eyes that will melt any heart. His mom is a young single mother, working a full time job doing the best she can do. She is completely involved in all of his educational and therapeutic needs and acts as not only his very caring mother but as his advocate for all his needs.
At school he has the appropriate adaptive equipment, however it is used by other children with special needs and the school is unable to send the equipment home. Mom struggles financially and cannot afford to purchase this type of equipment. His mother’s most current challenge is getting him into a chair that will hold him in a position safe enough, soft enough and reclined enough, with enough head support to feed him.
His physical therapist suggested the most appropriate piece of equipment for him would be a Special Tomato Soft-Touch Floor Sitter. This seat would allow the child the head support, trunk support, reclined positioning, soft base and height to allow mom to sit him there comfortably. This would allow the child to sit up and engage in other activities in his home environment as well and free up the grandparents to help mom in other ways than holding him for feedings.
If we reach our goal, we will be able to help purchase this suit for him. Please join us in supporting King Anthony and bringing some joy to him and his mom!
Also, be sure to check our our current campaign for Za'Carrya and the Ann Storck Center. This campaign ends at the end of the week and still need to reach our goal!
