Our non-profit foundation is a 501(c)3 organization inspired by the parenting journey with our son, Karter. Karter was born with a severe Hypoxic Ischemic Encephalopathy (HIE) injury and not expected to survive. Consequently, he was sent home on hospice. To everyone's surprise, Karter lived. Despite telling us not to expect him to live past age 1, Karter will turn 6 this June. This injury left him with a severe form of cerebral palsy, and he is unable to walk, talk, or eat. That doesn't stop him! He uses adaptive equipment, feeding tube, and eye gaze communication device. He is the epitome of "kourage" and gives the gift of perspective to all he encounters. Learn more about our story and foundation in this interview!
Every child deserves the opportunity to experience something as basic as walking. For kids like Karter, the Trexo Robotics technology helps their bodies walk the way they are supposed to! Besides the experience of walking, we (and other parents) have noted improvements including: better head control, improved trunk control, neuromuscular health, and for Karter, more energy! For us, the experience is invaluable. We can't put a pricetag on it. In reality, there is a hefty one- $1000/month+. Insurance doesn't cover this, and the cost of living for medically complex families is extreme. Please help us raise funds to gift the experience of walking to another child!
