The ride will be completed by Breyden C.D. Carlson and his father Clint D. Carlson. Breyden will be responsible for 30% or 930 miles of the ride while his father will be responsible for 70% or 2,170 Miles. The 30/70 ratio was set as Breyden only has ~30% of spastic control over his muscles; his father will make up the difference of 70%.
What makes this ride so special is two-fold; First, Breyden will be attempting to set a Guinness Book of World Record for a person, adult or child, with Cerebral Palsy riding a recumbent bicycle for 930 miles. Secondly; and most important Breyden will get the life-saving stem cell therapy treatments himself. Today Breyden is a stage 4 of 5 (basically a quadriplegic) 5 being the worse and been given a 0% chance of walking in his lifetime.
Although the future looks bleak there is still hope! Stem cell therapy treatments are showing astronomical results and have taken children stage 5 of 5 down to a stage 1, 2 or 3; So what does this mean? At stage 1 or 2 Breyden walks unassisted! This is our goal, to give Breyden what most of us take for granted every day; the ability to walk.
Stem cell therapy treatments aren't cheap and can cost upwards of $50,000 for a single treatment with a strong possibility that multiple treatments will be needed. A small donation will help this beautiful boy walk someday and what a gift that will be!
Obviously, no small undertaking but am certainly up for the challenge and am confident we will succeed.
Again thank you all so much for your interest in being part of this epic journey to take the fight to Cerebral Palsy!! www.rollinwithbrey.com
