CURRENT FUND RAISING PROJECTS
Hamzah, 21, & Massoud, 11, Hope School
Hamzah, 21, and Massoud, 11, are students at Hope School. It is through the school that their father, David, found out about Muriel's Angels program, especially since the Charity has helped several similar families via fundraising and donations. The family hopes to secure a wheelchair accessible van to help with the transportation needs of their children who both have Cerebral Palsy.
Below is a message from David:
Aidan, 12, Oak Middle School
Aidan Garcia, 12, is a 6th grade student at the Oak Middle School in Los Alamitos. Because of his cerebral palsy, Aidan needs a lot of help in taking care of himself. He is unable to feed himself, use the bathroom, and walk. He also requires assistance in operating his manual wheelchair.
Aidan’s parents are divorced, and he spends 50/50 time with each of them. His father, a single parent, often has to forgo work to take Aidan to school, doctor’s appointments, or other events. These trips can be much simpler for the both of them if Aidan is able to use his power wheelchair, which in turn requires a handicap van, something his Dad does not currently own.
Not only that, at 60 pounds, Aidan is a fast growing boy! Needless to say, Aidan’s Dad is needing more help in taking Aidan places. For now, he has to physically take Aidan out of his chair and carry him to his truck. He then needs to lift his heavy manual wheelchair by himself and place it into the bed of his truck.
Muriel's Angels has a cooperative agreement with Aero Mobility, the largest authorized mobility dealer in Southern California. We are truly grateful for their ongoing assistance in helping our Charity complete a number of our projects.
