Alex’s New Chair

December 20, 2021 by Variety - the Children's Charity

Alex – No stopping him now!

Alex is a bright and bubbly four-year-old, with a gorgeous smile that lights up the room!
This year, we funded an x;panda chair for Alex, valued at $12,345. The chair provides postural support and sensory input, whilst enabling Alex to remain safely seated at all
times. This means he can eat without risk of choking, participate in activities with his peers at their level and build his social and communication skills.

“Having the x:panda means we can sit at the dinner table together as a family, something we haven’t been able to do. It also means Alex can participate in bench top
activities, like baking, and eating the cake batter! One of my favourite past times.” Alex’s mum said.

“The x:panda is also be a fantastic addition during holidays, such as Easter and Christmas. Alex tires quickly in his standing frame but to have him supported in the x:panda means he can still participate in decorating the Christmas tree not only at one height. Up, down, in
between, wherever there is an empty space, Alex will beable to put a bauble wherever he wants with the help of high low base of the x:panda. Christmas is my favourite
holiday. As a kid I remember Christmas being filled with love, joy, family, and lots of food, and I wish nothing more than to be able to pass on that joy of Christmas to Alex. The x:panda helps us to do that.”
