Homemade wheelchair offers paralyzed toddler sense of freedom

A 13-month-old toddler paralyzed by a tumor on her spine has been outfitted with a homemade wheelchair so that she can keep up with others during playtime. Evelyn Moore, of Edmonton Alberta, Canada, was diagnosed with stage four neuroblastoma at just four months old, The Star reported.

Though Evelyn is in remission after eight rounds of chemotherapy, she was left permanently paralyzed below her arms by the tumor. Doctors informed her parents that she would likely army crawl until she was two, at which time she could be outfitted with her first wheelchair.
