After waiting almost 6 months, we finally have Curren's custom wheelchair. I have to say I have been preparing myself for this moment for a while and anticipated this to be pretty difficult, but instead the arrival of Curren's wheelchair has been completely incredible! His new little ride is so customized just for him. They made a special frame for him where the wheels are actually closer to the front so he can reach them better, The frame is lightweight aluminum for easier mobility, and the rims are carbon fiber mags with only five spokes and a guard to help keep his fingers from accidentally going in the wheels. He's got adult armrests because the kid ones are really small. And it looks incredible - it's lime green with electric blue wheel castors and front wheels that light up! But best of all, Curren loves his new wheelchair and it is going to open up a whole new world for him!
Along with this awesome new setup comes something even more moving than the wheelchair, Although my grandpa is no longer with us, his spirit and memories will be with us everyday now. We are blessed and honored to now have my grandpa's wheelchair accessible van, where we can just push Curren up a small ramp and lock the wheelchair down into the floor tracks in the van, His wheelchair even has a five-point harness system to keep him safe during vehicle transport. My heart is so happy for all of our new wheels and the opportunities the wheelchair and the van will bring to Curren, Here's to many new adventures!
