Keira is our 13 year old little Miss Diva as we like to call her now. She has the most amazing personality that shines through her smile and wins over everyone she meets. Keira has spastic quadriplegic cerebral palsy and epilepsy and is a full time wheelchair user currently learning how to use a powerchair (watch your toes Fife).
She is a music lover, her absolute favourite being Coldplay and Ed Sheeran. She will navigate on her I-pad to her hearts content to find her music videos and she will be in her element. She is able to sit independently on the floor to watch tv and play, her likes vary so much when it comes to television and film watching.
Every year, once a year Keira works hard doing an intensive Thera-suit therapy program in Orlando that we also fundraise throughout the year to do which she has been doing since she was 2.5. She enjoys doing therapy at school, at home also. She loves to be as independent as she possibly can which is great, she has such amazing spirit.
Keira communicates with her Tobii eye gaze communication device and it will be exciting to see how she evolves in the future in her own space being able to control her lights, television just using her eyes on her device on her own.
We just have to get her there and just like everything else we will, eventually. A new personal space for Keira will be a game changer for her in so many ways. We are so excited to see what the future brings with your help and support.
