Mabel's Story

Mabel suffers from Transverse Myelitis.

Variety – the Children’s Charity Tasmania has helped four year old Mabel who has recently moved to Tasmania with his family from a refugee camp in Sudan.

Through funds raised by Variety Tasmania and with much-valued assistance from Tasmanian philanthropist group, Foundation 33, Mabel has now been provided with a lateral stability splint, commonly known as a ‘second skin.’ This ingenious equipment, which has been specially adapted for Mabel’s specific needs, provides improved posture, control, symmetry and stability to the trunk, pelvis and shoulder girdles.
