Ethan's basketball wheelchair

Ethan is a 9 yr old boy who was born at 28 weeks and due to complications at birth now lives with Cerebral Palsy. He also was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease called EOE October 2016.  He is a very active boy and loves sports.  Over the past  6 years we have tried to find a sport that would allow him to be himself but also would meet his physical needs.  That has been a challenge.  Ethan was recently given the opportunity to join a wheelchair basketball team in Greenville, SC called Rollin' Tigers.  This will allow Ethan to be on a team with other kids like him.  Ethan needs a sports wheelchair to fit his body to allow proper motions while playing basketball.  We would love to provide this but need your help.  When you hear your son, who struggles to find his place, say, "Mom, I am finally part of a team," how can we not do our best to make this happen. Thank you for considering his need.  If you are not able to give please pray that this will be exactly what he needs to build the confidence and charactor that will help him in life.  Thank you.
