Home Accessibility for Ricardo

Nov 17, 2019

Ricardo, age 13, has muscular dystrophy. A new power wheelchair was supposed to make life easier, but it turned out to be too large for his family’s home.

With the help of local sponsors and volunteers, we modified the bathroom, but flooring and narrow door frames remained barriers to other areas—even Ricardo’s own bedroom.

But we didn’t give up.

After searching for the resources to complete this project, we’re delighted to share that a generous grant from the Durham Cerebral Palsy Foundation Fund will allow us to make the modifications necessary for Ricardo and his family to live comfortably in their own home!
