THE STORY:

The Different Needz Foundation was founded in 2009 and was inspired by the life of Luke Jordan. Luke was born with developmental disabilities which caused many physical disabilities and medical conditions. Despite his disabilities, Luke was able to bring out the best in those who knew him. Many individuals with developmental disabilities; such as Cerebral Palsy, Autism and Down Syndrome, require regular physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy and/or behavioral therapy. Durable medical equipment such as wheelchairs, braces, and gait trainers may also be necessary to support and teach basic physical functions. Properly caring for an individual with developmental disabilities is extraordinarily expensive. Medical insurance usually covers only one third of the necessary therapy services and a limited amount of medical equipment per year. Many families are not financially able to obtain the additional therapy and/or equipment, thus leaving the individual without the opportunity to reach his or her maximum potential and in some cases, their condition worsens. To date, the Foundation has granted over $160,000.00 in medical equipment and services. Each year we receive over one hundred applications from across the country totaling over $150,000.00. As you can see, we cannot fulfill every request. With you help, some day, we can. Please go to www.differentneedzfoundation.org for more information.
