Brooklyn is not able to ride a traditional bicycle due to limitations with her mobility that come from diagnoses of microcephaly and Triple X Syndrome. Triple X Syndrome include weak muscle tone and problems with fine and gross motor skills. Even though an adaptive tricycle would benefit Brooklyn, her family couldn’t afford it due to other health expenses.
HCCI was able to purchase an adaptive tricycle for Brooklyn. Now she is able to ride a bike and participate in family activities such as walks and bike rides in the neighborhood.
