It’s a beautiful day for a ride along the boardwalk! Meet eight-year-old, Jana, of Burlington County, NJ, riding the adapted tricycle this community helped her get.
Jana lives with a very rare and progressive brain disease called juvenile metachromatic leukodystrophy (MLD) which causes significant impairments in strength, balance, endurance, fine motor skills, and general mobility.
While she may not be able to walk, those legs sure can move! Her family reports that this bike has given her a piece of her childhood back. It is a way for her to play with her brother and friends. “The smile that she gets when she is on her bike is priceless.”
You can give another family this simple childhood joy of freedom and movement.
