“This life is tough – but our parents get up every day and give their best to their child.”
Equipment is critical for our children, teens, and young adults who are medically fragile or who have physical disabilities. If you’ve never needed medical equipment, you’ll be amazed! There is equipment to help sit, stand, walk, run – equipment for all sizes and abilities, with accessories, supports, and adaptations. But one thing all equipment has in common? It’s EXPENSIVE! Much of it is customized for the person so the equipment cannot be mass-produced.
Insurance and Medicaid might cover some of the cost – but they each have restrictions and limits. FOCUS + Fragile Kids is here to help children, teens, and young adults get the equipment they need, equipment that is medically necessary. The most frequent requests are wheelchair van lifts, specialized strollers and seating systems, stair lifts, and ceiling lifts. We currently have 15 children who have been approved by our medical review committee, waiting for funding. Here are just a few – select a photo to see more!
Will you help equip a child – to sit, to walk, to be able to go out, to enjoy time outside their home? By helping, you will also make everyday life a LOT easier for parents and caregivers. This life is tough – but our parents get up every day and give their best to their child.
All Equip A Child donations will go towards our current waiting list, are tax-deductible, and are guaranteed to make a child smile.
