September 5th, 2011

Bloomington, Ind. native has muscular dystrophy; mother also diagnosed with muscular dystrophy  

The Darrell Gwynn Foundation, on behalf of its donors and supporters, donated a $22,000 wheelchair to six year-old Caleb Weaver from Bloomington, Ind. at the Mac Tools U.S. Nationals at the Lucas Oil Raceway in Indianapolis on Monday September 5. Weaver was denied access to the power wheelchair he needs by his health insurance. The new power wheelchair will allow Caleb to play on the floor with his friends and participate in all his kindergarten class activities with his classmates. Caleb’s mother is also diagnosed with muscular dystrophy and his father cares for both of them, making the proper wheelchair for Caleb even more a necessity to give him the independence he needs. The wheelchair donation was made through the Darrell Gwynn Foundation’s national Wheelchair Donation Program.

The Darrell Gwynn Foundation’s mission is to provide AWARENESS, PREVENTION, SUPPORT and ultimately a CURE for Paralysis. The foundation’s primary support program is its national Wheelchair Donation Program which offers support to individuals confined to wheelchairs facing medical and financial hardships by donating custom power wheelchairs. The wheelchair donations give individuals the gift of mobility and offer them more freedom and independence. For more information please visit www.darrellgwynnfoundation.org.
