High School Students Put Together A Powered Wheelchair For Two-year-old Who Couldn't Walk
What is the first thing that comes in your mind when you think of teenagers? Many of us don't think about somebody who has a lot of get up and go and sometimes, we just think about someone who is focused on their personal lives. The good news is, this isn't always the case and although it may be true from time to time, there are teenagers out there who are willing to go above and beyond when it comes to helping others. This was seen clearly in the case of Cillian Jackson. He is a two-year-old boy that has a genetic condition and it makes it difficult for him to control his body. He lives in Minnesota with his parents and unfortunately, he has difficulty getting around. A power wheelchair was not within the family budget and due to his age, insurance would not cover it.
The wheelchair 2-year-old Cillian Jackson needed costs more than $20,000. His parents couldn't afford it. Insurance wouldn't pay for it. So, the robotics team at Farmington High School built him one: https://t.co/g1zaaFgIrj #land10kstories pic.twitter.com/IiBHdafRFI— Boyd Huppert (@BoydHuppert) April 1, 2019
