Adaptive Stroller for Sydney

For months, the Pearson family has been carrying Sydney back and forth to the car because she has significantly outgrown her stroller. Kathy, her mama, carries Sydney to and from the house in order to get her to her favorite places everyday, but that proves challenging when Sydney goes in a complete stiff extensions when she's excited!

She does not unload the wheelchair to transfer Sydney because she already loads and unloads the 90 pound chair + Sydney, who weights 71 pounds herself, on her own several times a day. Kathy is Sydney's full time caregiver, and this special needs adaptive stroller would provide a lot of assistance, keep Sydney safer during transferring, and help sustain Kathy's physical health and ability to care for Sydney.

Unfortunately, this adaptive stroller is not something that insurance is willng to cover, although it is so necessary. Sydney's condition is very severe, so the stroller needs certain add-ons to make it functional, which increases the price even more, to an astounding $6,000. 

I am so blessed to have known the Pearson family for almost my entire life. They have the biggest hearts of anyone I know. They give everything they have to care for Syd and provide the best life for her, while still pouring into the lives of their family and friends. I pray that we will be able to come together and support the Pearson family. Every little bit helps!
