Joseph is ten years old and lives with schizencephally, cerebral palsy and seizures. Joseph uses a manual wheelchair for most of his mobility, and is able to stand when supported and uses a supportive walker for short distances indoors.
Variety funded $50,624 towards a wheelchair accessible vehicle, enabling Joseph to be supported, travel safely and comfortably. It now takes one person without strain to get Joseph in the car, and it is made sweeter as he gets really excited when going for a car ride!
The car was developed by Les Brazier Special Vehicles and was presented to the family on August 12 when the 2016 SA Variety Bash stopped in Port Augusta.
