A chair for Caleb

Winnipeg Free Press - Section G - - THE SOCIAL PAGE -

A group of us at Transcona Hair­styles and Es­thet­ics knit scarves to raise money to buy a wheel­chair for an 18-month-old boy who suf­fered a brain in­jury when he was born.

Caleb has since been di­ag­nosed with spas­tic quadriple­gia cere­bral palsy. Caleb’s mother, Cindy McKague, is an es­theti­cian at the spa. We have raised more than $500 — one $20 scarf at a time — to­ward his wheel­chair which will al­low him to ex­plore the world.

Re­cently, we got the best news ever. A fam­ily came in and made a very gen­er­ous do­na­tion, which pushes us even closer to buy­ing the chair. They are Brian, Rose and son Wy­att. Brian has cere­bral palsy so this fam­ily un­der­stands what Caleb and his fam­ily are go­ing through.

We are at a loss for words, but shed many tears, many happy tears, when they came with the do­na­tion.

What an awe­some Christ­mas present. If we were to choose any­thing for a present, this would of be it. Thank you Rose, Brian and Wy­att for your amaz­ing gen­eros­ity.
