When Evelyn Moore was just 4 months old, she was diagnosed with neuroblastoma. The tiny toddler has gone through chemotherapy eight times.
Evelyn has been in remission for the last three months, but the toddler is paralyzed from the arms down due to a spinal tumor.
After seeing how expensive custom-made wheelchairs are, Evelyn’s dad, Brad, was worried about his little girl. He couldn’t afford to spend a ton of money, but he also wanted her to be able to really get around.
He came up with the perfect solution. No one knew his baby girl better than him, so he’d make her a wheelchair for a fraction of the cost! After seeing a design on Pinterest, Brad told his wife, Kimberly, that he could make their daughter the wheelchair.
Doctors told Evelyn’s parents that she could army crawl to get around, but Brad said, “I guess that wasn’t a good enough answer for me.”
You can see Brad’s genius design that has given his daughter a new lease on life that allows her to keep up with all the other kids her age.
Little Evelyn is not even 2 yet and she’s gone through more struggles than most adults.
She has diagnosed with stage 4 neuroblastoma at her 4-month check-up.
The tough toddler went through 8 rounds of chemotherapy and went into remission. But her family got devastating news, she was paralyzed from the arms down.
For $100, Evelyn’s dad was able to make the wheelchair with a cutting board, castor wheels, and a Bumbo chair!
The Bumbo chair is a perfect touch for helping to keep their daughter comfy.
The wheelchair has given Evelyn mobility that her doctors and family hadn’t expected.
Her Pediatric Oncologist Bev Wilson told Yahoo, “She gets to explore what she’d want to explore. She’s like any other child, but she’s actually faster.”
You can see how happy Evelyn is as she whips around in her incredible wheelchair in the video below!
