Genius!


Evelyn Moore has already endured a lot in her short life so far. When she was four  months old, she was diagnosed with neuroblastoma, a malignant disease of the nervous system. After eight rounds of chemotherapy, Evelyn is in remission, but a spinal tumor has caused her to be paralyzed below the chest.

Evelyn's father, Brad, just wants his daughter to be able to have a similar quality of life as other kids her age, so he tried to find a wheelchair for her. But toddler wheelchairs are not readily available, and the cost of getting one custom-made is astronomical. So, the crafty dad decided to make one himself.

Brad found inspiration for the chair on Pinterest. Using a cutting board as a base, carefully placed wheels, and a Bumbo baby chair, he was able to build a low-cost, child-friendly wheelchair that is a perfect fit for Evelyn. At first she only was able to roll backwards, but now she can zip around everywhere!

Now the only trouble Evelyn's parents have is keeping up with her!
