PHOENIX, March 29, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Advocates for Individuals with Disabilities (AID or AID.org) is on a mission to improve the lives of individuals with disabilities through the Foundation, much like 6-year-old Brooklyn. Juliann Newman noticed shortly after her daughter Brooklyn was born, that the she wasn't hitting the same milestones as her older children, and didn't have a great deal of muscle strength. Juliann Newman shared her concerns with Brooklyn's pediatrician. After being referred to a neurologist and undergoing an MRI at 14 months, Juliann and her husband learned that their daughter had previously suffered a stroke, which is most likely to have happened either in Juliann's third trimester or after the first few months of Brooklyn's birth. Now in kindergarten, Brooklyn notices that she is different from everyone else because of her disability. The brace that she wears gives her sores and blisters, and it is painful for Brooklyn to wear the brace for more than one day a week. Feeling defeated from her disability and wanting to be just like her friends, the Advocates for Individuals with Disabilities Foundation (AID Foundation) assisted her with a gift that would change her life.
Just last summer Mrs. Newman learned of a new option from a doctor at a trial clinic. The doctor was impressed with Brooklyn's use of the WalkAide at the trial. Brooklyn finally felt like the other kids when using the WalkAide at the clinic, however insurance didn't cover the high cost of the WalkAide and the family was unable to afford it. That's when Juliann reached out to Advocates for Individuals with Disabilities Foundation. Juliann learned of the AID Foundation through a fellow mother of a child with a disability that she connected with on Facebook. The AID Foundation, which provides immediate resources for those in with any type of physical and/or mental disability, gave Brooklyn the same WalkAide that she thrived with at the clinic. As one of the many individuals the AID Foundation continues to help, Juliann Newman was extremely pleased and has tremendous gratitude towards the Foundation.
"I broke down in tears when I heard the great news from the Advocates for Individuals with Disabilities Foundation," states Juliann Newman. "It's a complete blessing that I can't put into words. The AID Foundation's assistance is a miracle financially; it has been a struggle to pay for my family's needs and is especially hard with a child with a disability. The AID Foundation is giving my daughter the amazing gift of a WalkAide which makes her feel that she's just like everyone else. Brooklyn will now be able to keep up with her classmates and sister and won't feel different. She will no longer have to worry all of the constant injuries like sores and blisters from her brace."
