Kimberly and Brad Moore built a custom wheelchair for their 7-month-old daughter, Evelyn.
They took an online tutorial and it cost them about $100. At 4 months old, Evelyn had a spinal tumor and was diagnosed with neuroblastoma.
He left her paralyzed under his arms; fortunately, she eventually went into remission.
Doctors told Kimberly and Brad to wait until Evelyn was 2 to get her own wheelchair.
Evelyn’s parents didn’t want to wait. Evelyn is not afraid in her wheelchair, according to her mother.
The wheelchair consists of a cutting board, wheels and a Bumbo chair. It didn’t take Evelyn long to learn how to use it.
Pediatric oncologist Bev Wilson said Evelyn is a happy little girl. Evelyn is constantly on the move, visiting the nurses and greeting other children.
She is like other children, but faster. A few times a week, Evelyn is supported by a harness and walks on a treadmill.
It helps her improve bladder control, strengthen her immune system, and gain more control over her lower body.
Kimberly and Brad work hard to make sure Evelyn has a normal childhood.
They face many challenges, but Evelyn is happy and her health is improving day by day.
