Convaid partners with Dream Foundation

Wednesday, August 27, 2014

TORRANCE, Calif. – Convaid recently donated a new wheelchair to the Dream Foundation, helping a 24-year-old woman with Rett syndrome more safely and comfortably engage with her community. Cherlynn has been making due with an adult wheelchair, but due to severe scoliosis, she can’t sit upright in the wheelchair without padding. The Dream Foundation is a national nonprofit that grants dreams to adults who are facing life-threatening illnesses and who are in their last year of life. Rett syndrome is a rare genetic postnatal neurological disorder that occurs almost exclusively in girls and leads to severe impairments, affecting their ability to speak, walk, eat and even breathe easily.
