Kai Kalani Therasuit Therapy Fundraiser

Kai Kalani has cerebral palsy.

His sister, JoLee, and Mom are working to raise enough funds to obtain an intensive therapy protocol called Therasuit therapy for him this summer.

Therasuit therapy helps children with cerebral palsy in the following ways:
Re-trains the central nervous system
Provides external stabilization
Normalizes muscle tone
Aligns the body to as close to normal as possible
Provides dynamic correction
Corrects gait pattern
Provides tactile stimulation
Influences vestibular system
Supports weak muscles by using resistance to build strength
Improves balance
Encourages improvement in speech production and fluency
Improves coordination
Decreases uncontrolled movement in ataxia and athetosis
Improves body and spatial awareness
Promotes development of fine and gross motor skills
Improves bone density
Improves hip alignment
Provides deep proprioception

His mother, sister, extended family, and friends are trying to raise the funds to be able to set him on this course so that he can become as independent as possible in his life. The earlier that a child receives help, the better the outcome, so we are hoping that we can give him the best chance to be productive throughout his life by providing him with this opportunity during the summer of 2011. Our school community (where Kai and Joey attend and Mom teaches) has been very supportive and we are grateful for the volunteers who have offered to lend a hand to car washes, sales, and raffles!

Kai’s family and friends will be holding car washes, raffles, and sales to raise funds for his future.

If you or someone you know is willing and able to donate space, services, or ideas to Kai’s cause, please know that it is greatly appreciated.
