Fifteen-year-old William was badly injured in a diving accident last July.  His diagnoses include a cervical spine fracture and cervical spinal cord injury.  He is paralyzed from the chest down and has partial paralysis in his arms.

William loves puns and telling jokes and he likes to be with people.  He likes to read, play video games and talk with his friends.  He also used to love to swim.

As can be expected, William’s accident has hit their family of five very hard.  They live in West Virginia but William was brought to Cincinnati Children’s from West Virginia when he had the accident and lived there for many months.  They are having to modify his bedroom and bathroom, add a wheelchair ramp, purchase a lift and other adaptive equipment, and find a wheelchair accessible van so that he can get to his appointments at Cincinnati Children’s.

Wheelchair lift for van - $5000
