Kimberly and Brad Moore decided they couldn’t wait to build a wheelchair for their 7-month-old daughter Evelyn. They spent about $100 and followed an online guide.
Evelyn was diagnosed with neuroblastoma due to a spine tumor when she was four months old. She was left with paralysis below the arms as a result, but fortunately, she subsequently entered remission.
Evelyn shouldn’t be equipped with a wheelchair until she is two years old, the doctors advised Kimberly and Brad. Because Evelyn’s parents were impatient, their home now has a speed bump.
In her wheelchair, Evelyn is unafraid, according to her mother. A cutting board, castor wheels, and a Bumbo chair are used to construct the wheelchair. Evelyn quickly mastered its use after learning how to utilize it.
Bev Wilson, a pediatric oncologist, described Evelyn as a happy child. Evelyn is constantly on the move, greeting the other children and paying nurses a visit. She is like other children but quicker.
Evelyn uses a treadmill to walk while being supported by a harness a few times per week. She now has better bladder control and a stronger immune system and is gradually gaining more control over her lower body.
Brad and Kimberly put a lot of effort into giving Evelyn a typical childhood. Despite their many difficulties, Evelyn is content and improving daily.
