Hi! Meet Kyla! She's got CP, but still loves to be silly and have fun! This summer, we want to try to remind ourselves to make sure she gets to be a kid and have FUN! We could use a little help getting her some adaptive equipment to make that happen!

Hi!

Meet Kyla!

Kyla, experienced a lack of oxygen at birth called Hypoxic Ischemic Encephalopathy (HIE). As a result of the HIE, Kyla has been diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy, Cortical Visual Impairment, developmental delays, and has had many other challenges in her short life. She has a big team of specialists and is in seven therapies right now!

Cerebral Palsy makes everything Kyla tries to do challenging. She is not mobile and is also non-verbal. But, she is also silly, loves to have fun, and definitely finds ways to show us her opinions! 

In 2014 and 2015, we fundraised for Kyla to go to Panama for Stem Cell treatments and for her extra therapy needs! We had a lot of amazing help and have been so grateful for the support and love Kyla received! 

Kyla's whole life has pretty much revolved around her hectic therapy schedule, usually having at least 4-5 hours a week! Kyla will also turn 3 in September and will age out of her Early Intervention program and then will start school. We've sold our quad level house and will be moving into a ranch style home next month! It's going to be great for her! 

So, for this summer, although she will still continue with therapy, we want to try to focus on making sure she still gets to be a kid and have FUN! We would like to help Kyla enjoy things that other kids love! A fun summer! Bike riding, swimming, swinging, and getting out, and taking adventures! Unfortunately, due to her special needs, things can get really pricey when it comes to buying things for her to have fun! 

For 2016's T-Shirt and FundRazr campaign we want to focus Kyla's FUN-raising on a few main things!

---Special needs swing and frame for her new backyard. Kyla LOVES swinging and having one at home would be amazing for her! 

---Ramp for Kyla's new house! We are moving soon into a ranch style house for Kyla! Everything she needs will now be all on one floor! We will need to build a ramp in the attached garage so that Kyla can roll from inside the house right out of the garage to the driveway. This will give us more opportunities to take her outside in all of her different pieces of equipment, let her go on walks and adventures more easily, and will let us roll her from the house right onto the bus when she starts school!

---A new Taga 2.0 Bike! 

Kyla didn't win a bike in the contest we tried for, and since they are several thousand dollars, we're working with a nationwide foundation in hopes to have one funded! In the meantime, we learned about the Taga 2.0 that launched on Kickstarter! We were able to get it at a great early-bird price! They'll be starting to make them this summer and shoud ship in the early fall! It's a bike that adults ride and has a space for Kyla to sit in a reclining seat in front of us! No more stopping to adjust her in a bike trailer behind us! She's going to love it! 

Thank you so much for all of the love and support for Kyla! And, for helping us give her things we know she'll thrive in and have fun with!
