FES Bike for Orville Young

$16,100 of $16,000 goal

Created October 6, 2018
As many of you know, over the summer  Elaine & Micheal Young's four year old son, Orville,  came down with what seemed to be a typical childhood virus.  They soon found out it wasn’t as innocuous as it first seemed as Orvile had lost use of his right arm and was soon diagnosed with Accute Flaccid Myelitis. 

Orville has been working hard in both occupational therapy and physical therapy.  While at OT he is able to use an FES (functional electrical stimulation) bike that helps stimulate his muscles while peddling with his arms.   This machine is one of his best chances for recovery.  Unfortunately, the machine that is available to him is adult size and he is only able to use it twice a week.   The hope is to have a machine at home for daily use.
