Hi, I’m Willow
I'm two and a half, I'm bossy, I'm funny, I'm cute and I love my baby brother Albie. My favourite colour is pink, I love Peppa Pig and Hello Kitty and I have Spinal Muscular Atrophy type II (SMA).
This means I cannot crawl, kneel, get from a lying position to sitting or walk. I will never be able to do any of these things unless a cure is found. The one thing that would make my life better and enable me to do all the things a two and a half year old should be doing is a powered wheelchair. I already use a manual wheelchair indoors but it isn’t for use outside and I’m not strong enough to propel myself outside anyway. In a powered wheelchair I’ll be able to run along side my brother, hold my mummy’s hand whilst we walk to the park, reach up to the letter box and post a letter, pick a toy up from the floor.
Please help me to get mobile, oh, and they can paint it pink for me!!!!
The Snapdragon wheel chair
Here's the chair I need, isn't she a beauty!
I recently tried out the Snappy and loved it. I can use it as a chair but it also has a standing frame attachment so I can move around upright too!
Here’s a video of me in action!
