Abenezer’s Story April 14, 2022 4:39 PM

Abenezer is a 9 year old born in Ethiopia. He was born premature and diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy at age 2. At age 5, Abenezer and his family moved to the U.S. At school, he began using equipment such as wheelchairs and walkers and at PT, tried out treadmills, swings and tricycles.

After using the tricycle at PT, him and his family saw his muscle strength improve, leading to stronger legs. With Abenezer’s new adaptive tricycle he is able to continue to improve his muscle strength, independence and confidence.

Thanks to Van Metre Companies Foundation and all who attended our Downton Abbey fundraiser who raised the funds to purchase his bike!
