11-year-old Christian lives with his parents and siblings in Eden’s Landing, South Brisbane. Christian has spastic diplegic cerebral palsy and is able to walk short distances. He had surgery last year to release lower limb muscles to enable him to stand up. Christian has a wheelchair and a walker for mobility but transporting these items was becoming difficult in the family car, so the Connors approached the John MacLean Foundation to fund a specially modified trailer.
Christian also has a tricycle that needs to be transported to an area that he is safely able to ride in. With all this equipment the family ideally need a trailer that is covered and enclosed so that everything remains secure, dry and safe. JMF are pleased to be able to fund $6000 for the cost of new trailer designed for Christian’s needs.
Previously limited in their activities by what could be fitted into their car boot, the new trailer will make a big difference to the ease and frequency the family are able to go out together and on holidays.
