The Story

Noah's Story- written by Tracy Kennedy 

Tara and Dwayne  have a wonderful child name Noah. Noah has the most infectious smile of anyone I know even though he's a‎ 16 yr old boy with severe disabilities (Spastic Quadreplegic Cerebral Palsy, Epilepsy, Cortical Visual Impairment and Speech Impairment) and relies on a wheelchair van for all of his mobility needs.

Noah cannot and will never be able to be transported by a normal vehicle due to his fused spine and other severe orthopedic issues. He has to remain in his wheelchair while in the vehicle for safety purposes.

This family has spent over 220k (after insurance) on medical expenses and Noah has had over 40 surgeries to fix and reconstruct various skeletal issues. Needless to say new medical bills are piling up each year and after each surgery. Most recently there's become a need for full time nursing care, which the family is struggling to provide -even with partial help from Community Services.

Only $9000 of medical debt remains to cover off Noah's medical equipment, including wheelchair parts, splints, bathlift, ceiling lift, and medications.

Allow me to mention that this is their last hope to ease their financial and emotional burden. With new medical bills on the horizon, this family needs all the help they can get from the public and business.  

Noah is a very special boy as he has a very sensitive heart and is constantly concerned about the wellbeing of others before himself. As such, once his own needs are covered, he wishes to establish a Legacy Fund at the IWK that will provide some financial relief to other special needs families who are in dire need of help. 

I am ‎reaching out to you today in the hopes that you will give generously to this young man and give this family a chance at having a life where they are not constantly worrying about how they will pay off medical bills. This amount of stress is crushing them and the toll that this has taken on their family and physical health has been detrimental. 

A Heartfelt Thank-you!

Hi All! This fundraiser has come to an end, but unfortunately, Noah now requires a new specialized wheelchair. His body is slowly becoming contorted again and he needs to have a new insert custom designed to support him in an upright position. A new small fundraising campaign will be launched to raise $5000 to cover that expense. Noah remains in good spirits and has a positive attitude despite his discomfort in his current chair. Please stay tuned for this new fundraiser. Thank-you so much.

We need to end this campaign. I am putting a last effort out there to help us fundraise the final $9000. We need 900 people to donate $10 and we can rid ourselves of Noah's medical debt and prepare for purchasing a new wheelchair by the end of this year. Every donation is so greatly appreciated! Thank-you from the bottom of our hearts!! Tara, Dwayne and Noah

It has been awhile since we have posted an update. Noah is doing well. He has healed nicely from surgery and his major infection and so we are now focusing on his upcoming graduation from high school. He will be attending prom the end of May and graduating in June. Such a highlight of his life and we are proud of how hard he has worked to just get to this point in life.
