The Marshall Mobility Makeover

A Chair The Hope Local Project

Tommy is an amazing four-year-old little boy that was born with Spina Bifida. He was born at 30 weeks gestation, has endured 8 surgeries, four life-flights, and one life-threatening brain injury. He is a beautiful life miracle and Chair The Hope wants to help him to be able to experience life at home at a more fulfilling level.

Marshall Family

Tommy cannot walk, crawl, climb, and talk like regular kids his age. He enjoys the mobility provided by his wheelchair and parental pushing power. He craves affection, outdoor time with his family, and new experiences. 

Tommy’s family has done everything they can to make the space accessible and enjoyable for him. Handiness and cleverness are two tools constantly embraced in his service. While he certainly does his best to be involved with family activities, some places around his home could use a transformation for better access and experiencing life fuller.

Here are a few ideas:

  • Front porch ramp 
  • Back yard/side yard concrete path 
  • Back porch deck/ramp
  • Shade Provisions 
  • Swing

We are excited about this project and want to collaborate with a few partners and make these dreams become reality.  Please contact me if you have any additional questions. We are hoping to start this project in July and are already doing the leg-work to get the ball rolling.
