Follow Up On One Of Our Warriors

We were introduced to Surai back in July.   Chase’s Warrior Foundation donated an Upsee and Surai was able to walk down the aisle as a flower girl for her parents renewal of their vows.   Because of the donation,  Surai danced in her first ballet recital, something new she wasn’t able to do because of the Upsee.   It’s these images that tell us we are making a difference, not only to our warriors but to their family too.  [...]

Adaptive Bike

As a parent, one of the rights of passage that comes with watching your little ones grow up, is teaching them to ride a bike.  This was something I had experienced with my first two children and was really looking forward to completing the ranks when it came Chases time.

Upsee

Of all the adaptive equipment that we use for Chase, the one piece of equipment that we feel has impacted our lives the most, is hands down, the UpSee.  This device does offer some therapeutic benefits – such as weight bearing, muscle movement, and blood circulation.  But honestly, these are just added bonuses.  The real benefit that the UpSee brings to a child with mobility challenges is the ability to participate in many of lives events that kids love [...]
