TEENAGE DREAMS COME TRUE FOR DISABLED GIRL
A inspirational disabled girl from Hertfordshire has seen her dreams of attending a mainstream secondary school become a reality, thanks to the donation of a specialist wheelchair from National Childrens Charity The Boparan Charitable Trust.
Phoebe Michaelides, aged 10, from Hertfordshire has Bethlem Myopathy, a form of muscular dystrophy that affects her skeletal muscles, causing tightness and weaknesses. The result is that she is at high risk of falling and possible long term injury.
The new specialist wheelchair will provide her with safety and her much needed independence ahead of her first day at secondary school and her ultimate dream of reaching Cambridge University.
Baljinder Boparan, Families and Applications Trustee for the charity said “We are delighted to have been able to support Phoebe and wish her the very best for her future adventures.
RaAlex, Phoebe’s Dad said “We would not have been able to get this vital chair without the support of the Boparan Charitable Trust”.
