Sixteen year old Courtney is a keen and accomplished wheelchair basketball player with ambitions to play for Team GB in future Paralympics. She is dependent on her wheelchair because cerebral palsy means she can only walk short distances with the aid of a wheeled walking frame.
Four year old Savannah always seems to have a smile on her face despite severe cerebral palsy which means she needs constant care and help with feeding and changing. She loves books, music and people and probably gets her positive outlook from her mother who has a very positive outlook on life.
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.
