"This is something we’ve been trying for so long. I cannot say THANK YOU enough for helping to put him through this program. It means a lot to us… and especially HIM! He said, “mom I can ride a bike with all the other kids when we go camping…” with a huge smile on his face. And, he said he “felt like a boy” J Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!"
