Aaliyah’s Story

Aaliyah has weak muscles and painful joints due to multiple medical conditions including skeletal dysplasia and juvenile idiopathic arthritis. It makes her totally reliant on her wheelchair for mobility. But her old NHS wheelchair is very heavy to propel, so she tires easily, its weight makes it difficult to get in and out of the car when her parents take her out.

Variety agreed to provide a new lightweight wheelchair for Aaliyah that was exactly what she needed.

It is already making a difference, enabling her to get around more easily, socialise more with her friends and not get quite so tired. The result has been quite a confidence boost too.
