PHOENIX, March 18, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Opening its doors for immediate assistance, Advocates for Individuals with Disabilities ("AID.org" or "AID Foundation") www.AID.org is on a mission to improve the lives of individuals with disabilities, much like 4-year-old Israel. Young Israel, born in Eastern Europe, and diagnosed with Spina Bifida, was adopted just a few months ago by Stacey Gagnon, an Arizona resident who, along with her husband, vowed to improve his life. Upon his arrival in the United States, Israel had no sense of mobility other than on the ground in army crawls, until now. In fact, Israel had never even been outside of his room until he was adopted.
Mrs. Gagnon spoke to a friend of the troubles that she was having finding a proper wheelchair for Israel, due to difficulties and limitations with her insurance provider and other sources. Her friend luckily put her in touch with Advocates for Individuals with Disabilities Foundation, a connection that would change Israel's life forever. The AID Foundation strives to provide immediate resources for those individuals in need and with nowhere else to turn in Arizona. The AID Foundation, which provides assistance to individuals with all types of physical and/or mental disability, provided not only a wheelchair, but the correct custom-designed, top-of-the-line wheelchair that was specifically designed and customized for Israel's unique needs in a remarkably short amount of time. This one-off custom wheelchair will give Israel the ability to have a similar level of mobility as his siblings and peers for many years to come. This is just one of the many ways the AID Foundation provides assistance to those who reach out to them. As one of the many individuals who the AID Foundation continues to help, Stacey Gagnon was extremely pleased and couldn't believe how quickly the organization was able to accommodate her family and how they went above all of their dreams and provided the absolute best wheelchair for their son's needs.
"AID Foundation provided my son with the amazing gift of mobility," states Stacey Gagnon. "Not only was the process incredibly fast, but the organization was also extremely understanding and knew exactly which wheelchair was right for my son, and insisted in providing the best possible wheelchair. Dealing with medical and insurance issues can be a difficult process, but the AID Foundation didn't waste any time. It was an incredible blessing to know that an organization like Advocates for Individuals with Disabilities exists and that the Foundation offers support for those in need just like my family."
Advocates for Individuals with Disabilities is continuing its mission to improve the lives of individuals with disabilities in the Arizona community. Providing immediate resources, whether it be legal counsel, walkers, leg braces, lifts, electronic walking assistors, wheelchairs, transportation, assistance with medical bills, and much more, the organization wants to assist more people in similar situations to Stacey's, aiming to help 3 to 4 individuals a day. Advocates for Individuals with Disabilities also aggressively protects the Civil Rights of Individuals with Disabilities when it comes to businesses which create barriers preventing or violating their civil rights in order to advance equal rights and opportunity for all Individuals with Disabilities.
