Sadly, three-year-old Tanner Jensen and his 20-month-old brother Skyler. So, were both born with a rare genetic condition known as Spinal Muscular Atrophy. Sadly, which means they can’t walk, crawl, control their heads, or even lift their arms. But life for the young brothers will soon be improving thanks to students at Brigham Young University who built the pair a set of tiny affordable electric wheelchairs.
So, thinking about it then I would have thought that small kid sized wheelchairs would be made available. Unfortunately obviously not! In this day and age then children can of course be cured of many diseases and illnesses.
One of my favourite TV programs here in the UK is “Childrens Hospital”. Filmed from the wonderful Manchester children’s hospital. Incredible things can now be done to offer ill and unfortunate children the chances of reaching adulthood and of course a better quality of life. So this little guy looks happy and is off to a good start on his long road ahead. I wish the little fellow and his brother all the best in his upcoming life. I like many parents have now gone through life without any major trauma to our children. Thanking ourselves very lucky indeed.
