At just 2ft 8ins tall, many aspects of everyday life are literally out of reach for Georgia. What she desperately needed was a very specialised Snapdragon wheelchair costing £18,000. This would provide much needed mobility and enable her to adjust her height, to eat at the table or to reach a cupboard.
Variety heard about Georgia’s plight when she appeared with her parents on a morning TV programme to launch their own appeal for the wheelchair. Variety immediately stepped in, identified her exact needs and agreed to provide her wheelchair.
Georgia is believed to be Britain’s smallest teenager and despite the limitations of her condition she remains determinedly upbeat.
”I forget I’m small and see myself the same as everyone else” says Georgia.
Now the new wheelchair will enable her to do more of the things that everyone else takes for granted.
