Our youngest patient, Hazel, is 3 years old and diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy.  Hazel is able to Walk, Play and Run with her brother.  The Freedom to Walk Foundation are Volunteers whom are Individuals, Small Business Owners and the Community, whose main goal is to help others to Walk.  Since January 2013, they have been Improving the Quality of Life for so many.  

MISSION
Educate, Inspire and Empower individuals with Foot Drop on how to overcome financial obstacles through fundraising efforts and to subsidize the cost of the Functional Electrical Stimulation (FES) devices, WalkAide and Bioness L300 Go, which helps them to Walk.
PROBLEM
Foot Drop is a weakness or paralysis of the muscles involved in lifting the front part of the foot necessary for people to walk.  It causes a person to either drag the foot and toes or engage in a high-stepping walk called steppage gait.  To compensate for this loss of mobility, sufferers tend to over-extend their hip muscles so their foot won't drag, often tripping, falling and causing further injury.
SOLUTION
The WalkAide and Bioness L300 Go alleviates the symptoms and complications of Foot Drop.  When worn on the calf, it sends electric impulses to the affected foot causing the foot and leg to lift and follow through as they would with a natural, unimpaired gait.  Designed to restore mobility to those individuals  seeking a return to Independence and Improves their Quality of Life.
Funds raised will help to offset the cost for the $3,000 WalkAide and $5,200 Bioness L300 Go devices.  With an out of pocket cost, it’s prohibitive for many who see the device as an invaluable opportunity to Improve their Quality of Life.

OUTCOMES
* Increase self-esteem and confidence
* Improve quality of life
* Reduce risk of falling
* Increased function
* Improve child development
* Increase physical activity levels
