Illias’ Story

Illias is 11 years old and was born with both spina bifida and hydrocephalus.

Illias loves singing, playing the piano and basketball but having to always use a wheelchair is restrictive and could lead to longer term health and mobility problems for him.

So Variety agreed to fund a Kaye walker.
