Courtney is 14 years old and was diagnosed with Schizencephaly at birth. Her condition has left her without motor skills and no ability to sit up, stand up or walk on her own. Courtney’s movement requires assistance at all times. She loves to ride in the car because it allows her to see different things. Courtney had outgrown the carseat that she had since 2003, so her enjoyable car rides were restricted. No normal carseat would fit her special needs.The new seat provided by Ricky King Children’s Fund accommodates her increase in size and provides security and support. Now Courtney is able to safely and comfortably enjoy car rides again!
