Aiden was diagnosed shortly after birth with a rare genetic condition called Ring 18. With this condition, Aiden has severe neurological delays and very low muscle tone. He is not mobile and is 8 years old.
Aiden loves to be involved with whatever his family is doing! He likes to be sitting in an upright position but cannot do so on his own. Years ago, Aiden received a specialty chair with high-low capabilities purchased from Children’s disAbility services. The chair provided Aiden with the support he needed to be with his family at home, hang with his mom while she was doing the dishes or visit with his siblings.
Aiden has outgrown his chair and his family reached out to Variety in hopes of receiving some support for a new chair that would meet Aiden’s needs for several more years. Overall this new chair would aid in Aiden’s development as he can be a more active part in the world around him. With other expenses related to Aiden’s care, a new chair was not in his family’s budget.
Aiden’s family does not hesitate to make sure he gets what he needs, they are great advocates for Aiden and Variety was so happy to help purchase a Mygo Seating System from Leckey to help support Aiden.
