This is Henry.Henry is working hard at walking short distances with his wheeled walker and foot orthoses but he needs this chair for crucial support to prevent scoliosis. It also provides better conversation and connection with others at meal times and in many other activities.For Henry, gaming offers the benefits of play and social interaction with others, when there are many other leisure activities he cannot participate in. In his new supportive, activity chair, Henry can maintain the postural balance needed for his independence in daily upper body activities like eating and drinking, writing, brushing his teeth and his love of gaming.“You can see from the big smile on Henry’s face the difference it has made to him. He is now able to engage in fun and creative play while sitting in a chair that keeps him safe and well supported. He even appears to have colour-coordinated his iPad case to the chair!” (Henry’s Mum)#makeadifference #beneficiarystory ... See MoreSee Less

This is Kayvan.A resilient kid, Kayvan was born prematurely at 24 weeks, weighing only 500 grams. He spent nine and a half months battling for his life under the care of dedicated doctors and compassionate nurses at Mercy for Women’s hospital and later at the Royal Children’s Hospital.In addition to his own challenges, Kayvan's parents face their own hardships. Despite their love for their adopted country, they have spent nearly a decade without permanent residency, making financial burdens heavier to bear. Kayvan's mother, despite her own health struggles and surgeries post-birth, remains resolute in her love and care for her son, though she now requires assistance herself to care for Kayvan.Kayvan's story has attracted the attention of MAD, an organization funding regular early intervention therapies for him. These therapies aim to support Kayvan in achieving developmental milestones such as crawling, standing, and interacting with peers.Despite his early struggles, Kayvan is determined to thrive, eager to experience the world like other children his age.#makeadifference #beneficiarystory ...

This is Willow.The wonderful team at Royal Children's Hospital, Melbourne introduced MAD to this beautiful 9 year old. Willow has various medical conditions, including cerebral palsy, and was in desperate need of a new wheelchair.Willow’s family are unable to access Centrelink due to their residency status and they have no other support networks in Australia, as all relatives live overseas. It was already extremely difficult for the family to pay for Willow’s daily medication and care and the significant cost of a new wheelchair was adding to the family’s financial and emotional stress.The funding from MAD Foundation for a new, appropriate wheelchair has greatly increased Willow’s quality of life and decreased the burden on her family. It has provided Willow with comfort, support and optimal positioning to maximise participation and engagement across all areas of her life.“To the MAD foundation I would like to give you a huge thank you for your time and support in helping us fund our wheelchair for our li’l princess Willow. This new wheelchair will help us in terms of her growth and comfortability. We are extremely happy and appreciate all your help. Thanks for all of your incredible work!” - Willow’s mum#makeadifference #beneficiarystory ... See MoreSee Less
