Charlie, 6 and Zara, 4 years old both live with Ataxia Telangiectasia (A-T) an incurable progressive condition that combines the worst symptoms of muscular dystrophy, cerebral palsy, cystic fibrosis and has a high rate of cancer.
Charlie has a quiet and gentle personality and loves to build with his Lego. Zara is quite the performer and loves to sing and dance. They share a great sense of humour.
Prior to receiving their Freedom wheels bikes they both had regular bikes that unfortunately no matter how much they tried they just didn’t have the strength to pedal, so to see them ride their Freedom Wheels bikes instantly and with ease was just MAGIC!
Being able to ride a bike is something most of us take for granted and we are so thankful for the joy that it has brought to Charlie and Zara, we would love to see other children have the opportunity to enjoy this experience also.
Now having the opportunity to ride, Charlie and Zara have now taken part as our Freedom Wheelers in our current challenge, Ready Set Move.
