Because of your generosity, Sabine's Christmas wish was granted!
As a baby, Sabine was having up to 50 seizures a day, leaving her developing brain overwhelmed. And now, due to her erratic and involuntary movements, she needs extra help to get around and stay safe.
Sabine had always loved spending time in the ocean with her family, but getting there became more difficult. Without a special beach-ready wheelchair, Sabine's mum Hilda had to carry her. And as Sabine grew older and heavier, it meant that a simple trip to the beach was no longer possible.
But thanks to you, and many more caring supporters just like you, the $7,019 All-Terrain Beach Wheelchair has been added to the Ability WA Equipment Library!
So now, Sabine and her family can visit the beach and once again enjoy this special family time together doing something they all love.
"Sabine's seizures have robbed her of so much. She has had so many challenges and deserves all the fun, freedom and new experiences we can give her.
I'm so incredibly moved that generous people, who have never even met my beautiful daughter, would do this special thing for her.
You are all heroes in my eyes. To see Sabine and her brothers splashing about in the water together was the best Christmas present I could have hoped for."
– Hilda, Sabine's mum.
Thank you for your gift that made this possible, which has made such an incredible difference to this Perth family.
