This is Alex's Chance
12 year old Alex has severe spastic quadriplegia cerebral palsy. All of his muscles are affected either by high tone or low tone.
All of Alex’s limbs have very high tone and his trunk had low tone. He needs to use a wheelchair for mobility and relies on us for all activities of daily living.
When winter arrives, we struggle with putting coats on Alex due to the tightness of his arms. We have gone through several coats every season because they all ultimately rip at the arms and become unusable.
We discovered the Koolway Sports coats and found out how truly life-changing they are. The way they are designed makes it possible to put on a coat with dignity, no pain and no ripped clothing.
Unfortunately the price of these coats put them outside of our reach. We simply cannot afford a Koolway coat for Alex but desperately need one. We are also asking for the Koolway boots for Alex as we have not been able to find a option that fits over his Ankle-foot orthoses (AFOs) to keep his feet warm in the winter.
