Maddison and her siblings can now happily share safe outdoor fun time!
10 year old Maddison is a precious member of her family. She lives with her two siblings Taylah and Jordan and her mum.
Maddison is an exceptionally social, exuberant and fun-loving child. She enjoys the simple pleasures of life and has a heightened awareness that she is greatly loved and cared for. She blesses everyone with her unique qualities – of which the standout would be her infectious smile and giggle!
Maddison was born with global developmental delay as result of abnormal forming of the brain during pregnancy. The challenges she faces daily are as a result very complex. Outwardly, Maddison lives with quadriplegic cerebral palsy – limiting her to much time spent in a wheelchair. Maddison is profoundly deaf, is visually impaired and suffers from epilepsy, which incites seizures on a regular basis of varying presentations.
Given her challenges, there are many differing ways her family attempts to best manage her immediate daily care needs and increase her quality of living.
Spending safe and fun quality time with her siblings can be a challenge and having a Springfree Trampoline to play on together everyday to stimulate her senses and provide her with a safe space to engage with them outdoors would be fantastic! Especially since Maddison LOVES being outdoors.
In March 2011 $200 was raised publicly and then topped up with $800 grant funding, received from Grosvenor Foundation. Springfree Trampolines also assisted by providing a $75 discount on the price of the trampoline.
