A Worthy Sunday
Juan Carlos Salmon is nine and has been our patient since his first year. Ron Becker found this highly fitted stander/walker in Colorado. Yesterday, our donor and physical therapy specialist from Phoenix came on her first trip, and put the two together. Juan Carlos has strong shoulders and head support because of his mother’s diligence. He needs to build his legs which at the moment are twisted and non-responsive. As you can see, that all will change. Juan Carlos is bright and immediately understood the new adventure.
Juan Manuel Hernandez is 31 and severely crippled. Most of his body doesn’t respond. However, he designed a bike/wheelchair for himself which he propels with his right hand on the bike gear, now above the handle bars. He wants to have a background in computer training to get a job. We see him in the line and he has become one of our favorite friends.
