Liam's Journey...

Liam has Epilepsy and Cerebral Palsy which mostly affect his lower limbs. Although able to transfer independently from his wheelchair to another sitting surface, as he has got older and taller, he can no longer walk, even with aids. Liam also has a learning difficulty and some anxieties in new situations, but he is a very personable young man and has had a great interest in playing basketball for some years. 

Variety provided Liam with a new Quattro Ti TQ Basketball Wheelchair to encourage him to realise his potential and his ambitions. Liam is thrilled with his new wheelchair and enjoys racing around the basketball court in it.
