I would like to help my friends by raising money to purchase a Bike with special needs adaptations for their 5 year old daughter Fatima, who was diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy. Any additional funds raised will go to the family, to purchase other equipment needed for bathroom lifts and therapy equipment.

Here's her story:

Shortly before birth an ultrasound alerted the parents that something may be wrong. On December 14, 2007; Fatima was born premature, her diagnosis for the first year of life was not promising and her parents heart broken.

5 years later, Fatima has proven all the doctors wrong.  She eats without a feeding tube, she enjoys 'dancing' to music, she loves swimming in 'warm' water, she enjoys being outside.  And Fatima's greatest gift to everyone she meets is her smile; the smile, that lights up the world.

It is that smile, that motivates me to help this family.  Her parents do EVERY thing in their power to include Fatima in every part of our lives, even if it means carrying her the whole hike because her wheelchair is not made for tough terrain.  

Last summer, on one of our hikes we seen a bike...and her mom said, "that would be so cool to be able to take Fatima on a bike."

It may seem like a simple request, but with the cost of a wheelchair bicycle is $4,800 on sale which doesn't include shipping & special accessories that may be needed. The cost is astronomical, especially for a family already stretched with medication costs and other expenses not always covered by goverment special needs assistance benefits.

See order form below for price listings.

Please help me raise money for this bike, so that Fatima can continue to share that beautiful smile and change the world one smile at a time.

Thank you for taking the time to read about Fatima's Story.
