Fundraiser Details

Sweet Kaly was born with SMA and has no mobility without her wheelchair. She cannot walk, crawl, or scoot. Her only independence is her Blue Panthera Micro Manual Wheelchair made specifically for her disease, weighing only 9 pounds, and is manufactured outside the United States.

Kaly’s wheelchair was taken on January 4th from the corner of 2nd Street & Calvin Blvd. in Seymour, Indiana between the hours of 4 and 7 pm. This brokenhearted, beautiful girl is supposed to start school on Tuesday and cannot without her wheelchair.

Your support will help replace Kaly’s wheelchair and give her back her independence.

Your support, thoughts, and prayers are truly appreciated by the entire family.

FYI….In case you’re wondering why the total amount of funds needed keeps lowering, we are deducting the cash donations as they are received. The current total of funds needed is what’s left to reach our goal. Thank you to all who have contributed to Team Kaly!

Great News!!! After shopping around, a company was located that will provide the new wheelchair for $3750.00. This puts us that much closer to seeing Kaly in her new chair!! Thank you to everyone for the support of Kaly and her family. I am so proud to be a part of Team Kaly!!

A heart-felt ‘Thank You’ to all of the supporters of Kaly for the thoughts, prayers, and donations to replace her wheelchair!

Kaly’s Grandmother has been diligently working to find it. She has personally contacted all local scrap yards, recycling companies, and making public pleas (Wave 3 and The Tribune) hoping for the return of Kaly’s wheelchair.

The chair that was taken was on loan from the Cincinnati Children’s Hospital. She has been in contact with the hospital seeking assistance in locating a replacement. She is also exploring the possibility of finding a used wheelchair at a lower cost (thus reducing the amount of funds needed). They will still endure the cost of fitting and sizing the chair, shipping, travel, and purchase.

Her entire family is in awe of the support they have received from the community and appreciates everyone’s effort to help Kaly.
