Level Playing Field
Variety asks 'is there a level playing field?’
Illias is 11 years old and was born with both spina bifida and hydrocephalus.
The spina bifida has caused weakness of Illias’ legs and because of this he uses a wheelchair. But regular wheelchair use means that his leg muscles may not be getting enough work which could result in increased muscle weakness and the risk of poor bone development.
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.
Do you have a story like Illias’? We'd like to hear it... Share it with us
