Help for a Local Child in New Jersey
Sergio -- a 20-month old child from Passaic, New Jersey -- was extremely premature at birth and diagnosed with a disorder of the brain (encephalopathy) and a type of paralysis (diplegia). Sergio receives physical therapy via early intervention and outpatient physical therapy to promote functional mobility and gross motor milestones. Presently, Sergio does not stand or walk on his own.
Healing the Children New Jersey provided assistance to Sergio by purchasing a special car seat and corresponding car seat travel cart so that he may be safely transported to his therapy sessions. Sergio’s mom stated, “Thank you for providing my son Sergio with a car seat. I greatly appreciate your support.”
