Eason – Second Skin
Eason was admitted to the Royal Children’s Hospital after illness resulted in a spinal cord injury and lower and upper limb dysfunction. MAD Foundation was notified of Eason’s rehabilitation journey and his need for a new postural garment to help with upright posture, fatigue and trunk control. It also assists with respiratory mechanics and reduces risks of spinal abnormalities.
MAD funded a Second Skin garment costing $3192.00 to greatly improve his quality of life, his safety and his love of Lego!
“Thanks MAD. The Second Skin makes me feel very supported when sitting in my wheelchair so I can enjoy activities like Lego and crafts.” (Eason)
