H.A.L.O. Gift Helps Lily Be ‘Involved’ With Her Family

Lily’s new chair adjusts
so she can play with her twin.
The Help A little One Foundation recently helped Lily C.'s family to purchase a Special Tomato Hi-Low Multi-Positioning Seat Seating System, designed for children who need postural support.

This adaptive chair and footplate is adjustable for height and depth, so it “grows” with the child, eliminating the need to buy costly new equipment every year.

“We are so grateful for H.A.L.O. Lily uses her feeding chair several times a day and it allows her to be high or low while her brother and twin sister are playing. She can always be involved,” said her mom, Terri.

The broad, surrounding tray also enables Lily to prop up her elbows so she can hold her Sippy cup independently.

“The chair is very helpful for positioning when Lily is receiving occupational and ABA therapy, too,” she added.

The family has spent significant amounts every year to supplement what their insurance provides for four-year-old Lily, but Terri said the family needed some extra help this year to meet the needs of all three of their children: Luke, 7, Lily, and her twin Lexi. She discovered H.A.L.O. online and was pleased her request was approved.

“The H.A.L.O. Foundation has been a blessing for our family. Our goal is to reciprocate this kindness by teaching our children about generosity and helping people in need.”
