Welcome to “Help My Child Learn to Walk,” a special project with the goal of shining a light on the very real needs of some non-ambulatory children and adults at the Morrison Center in Scarborough, Maine. “Help My Child Learn to Walk” is a fundraiser fueled by a mother’s love and her rekindled dream to have her severely disabled child learn to walk. There are many families with this same dream for their loved one; below are the blog entries of two such mothers. Squarely behind each of these women is a loving family and a caring special-purpose school, all coming together to make something very magical happen: to secure a powerful, state-of-the-art device that will teach many at the Center how to finally walk.
What the LiteGait gait trainer does for even the most challenged and difficult users is nothing short of amazing. But we need your help this spring and summer to raise the funds that will make these personal breakthroughs possible for Leland and Miles and their comrades. Read on for the blog entries of these two hopeful mothers, and please consider making a tax-deductible donation to the cause by clicking the “HOW TO DONATE” link on this page. We promise to post follow-up images, progress updates, and success stories once the therapy begins.
THANK YOU for your generous and crucial help getting these deserving children walking.
