Safe Wheels for Sydni…Here She Grows Again.

Many of you know our amazing friend Sydni Pecevich from the Safe Home for Sydni project that made her S. Boston home handicap accessible. The modifications were a blessing and have enabled Sydni to continue living at home full time with her sister, brother and Cathy, her single mom who has devoted her life to caring and advocating for Sydni.

For those unfamiliar with Sydni’s story, at 2 months old she was diagnosed with a rare and malignant brain tumor. She endured extensive chemotherapy, surgeries and hospitalizations. Sydni was not expected to survive but she has, defying doctors’ expectations. Sydni has many disabilities, but she faces them head-on daily. Sydni is a survivor, living a happy, cancer free life and getting ready to celebrate her 12th birthday in November.

The challenge we face today is that Sydni is growing rapidly from 43 lbs in 2011 to 95 lbs. 5' tall (same height as her mom!) today. Her current 2006 minivan is no longer reliable and will not make  it through another New England winter.  Sydni needs a larger wheelchair van to fit her supportive equipment, permit her to sit with caregivers (to safely monitor her seizures) as well as allow her mom to safely transport her to all of her countless doctors’ appointments, therapies, and family activities.  Modified vans are expensive but it is our hope that it will support Sydni for the next 10-12 years.

Financial support is needed to help this family obtain their van.  Please help share Sydni’s story and if able, make a donation here or send a check payable to "Safe Wheels for Sydni", c/o East Boston Savings Bank, 708 East Broadway, South Boston, MA 02127 Attn:  Lisa Joseph.

Thank you!
