Hi Everybody! I am from Colombia and I am here because my three years old child suffered of the "West syndrome" that is a epileptic condition, that is characterizes for seizures that are very hardly controlled. This syndrome has caused that my little son does not make things that other childrens done at his age (like talk, walk, eat by himself, identify people or objects, etc). In this moment I will focus about his mobilization, he can not move himself and for his age the current "prams or pushchairs" are not adapting to him, so my son needs a special one, a neurological pushchair. All days is a challenge for me to move him from one place to another, his weight is 44 pounds approximately and I have to bringing him to his therapies, medical controls, etc. He needs this special pushchair due to his difficult health condition (low congnitive and physical development). For his mobilization it is important that this pushchair be graduable (size)according with his growing. I have made the request in a lot of ways to the health Public Service in my country but this request has not been approved due to the cost, despite of the need of my child. So I made an searching in order to find the pushchair that complies the medical recomendation and I found one, but this costs 5000USD and unfortunately I don´t have money to buy this special pushchair. The manufacturer is in Germany and the pushchair model is the Bingo Evolution. You can see my son in Twitter @BRAVETIGERCO he's precious and will waiting for your help! God Bless you a lot!
