H.A.L.O. Underwrites Custom Ramp for Eduardo

Eduardo of Lancaster, California was developing normally until age 10 when he was diagnosed with adrenoleukodystrophy.

This degenerative condition destroys myelin sheathing in the brain causing loss of physical and cognitive abilities. At age 12, Eduardo now requires a wheelchair to leave his home.

Hillary Cohen, ACSW, a social worker with Libertana Health Care, discovered H.A.L.O. in a Google search, after insurance denied funding for a standard ramp due to the trailer home’s measurements.

As a result of HALO's generous funding of building supplies, Eduardo's father, who works in construction, was able to build a custom ramp.

“This has been life-changing for Eduardo as it has allowed him to access to community safely,” said Hillary.

“H.A.L.O. has been incredibly helpful and supportive of the children on our pediatric palliative home care program, Partners for Children. We are so appreciative of your foundation.”
