Freedom Concepts Tandem Tricycle Recipient
Jocelyn Powers is an awesome 11 year-old living on Fort Campbell, KY military post with her parents, Justin and Angie Powers and her sweet Labradoodle, Yaya.
Jocelyn was born three months prematurely causing her to have a condition called Spastic Quadriplegic Cerebral Palsy which is a neurological disorder that affects all the muscles in her body, and as a result, she requires assistance with all aspects of life.
The JOY is the epitome of who Jocelyn is! Joy can easily be viewed as one of the most magnetic forces in the universe, and when in the presence of Jocelyn this is her superpower that she shares freely. Even without being able to speak, Jocelyn teaches all those around her how to embrace every moment and fully soak in the goodness.
Because of her physical limitations, Jocelyn takes tremendous pleasure in things that help her experience life. She adores going for runs in her jogging stroller, being pushed high and fast on adaptive swings, standing up tall in her stander, swimming, rough house that ends in legendary tickle fights and soon, she will bask in the glorious fun of riding on the Freedom Concepts ET2611 Tandem adaptive tricycle with her parents. This specialized tricycle will provide an exhilarating blast of fresh air to Jocelyn's face and body while improving her range of motion, strength and endurance. Along with reaping the benefit of outdoor exercise, this tandem bike will fulfill her desired "need for speed" while ensuring she's fully supported and safe. Jocelyn's parents say, "Make no mistake, because of American Mobility Project's donor's generous and loving hearts, Jocelyn will be beaming from ear-to-ear while burning rubber like a pro."
UPDATE: Jocelyn got her bike in February, 2022 and she loves it so much. She is loving the wind in her face, going fast, being up front, her legs being active and all the new associated experiences. She rides 2-3 each day they get out---so pretty much every day. Go Jocelyn. Your big smile makes all of us smile.
