Meet Jayde and Skyla – the 2018 recipients of the Janna Epp Bursary!
Jayde and Skyla are 6 year old twin girls living with cerebral palsy. Jayde and Skyla are extraordinary little girls. They have a zest for life and have overcome so many hurdles. As you can see from their photos, they are full of love and laughter and have brought much joy to their family.
Jayde and Skyla’s biggest challenges relate to their physical disabilities which limit their opportunities and restrict their quality of life. They miss out on opportunities to play, explore and interact both in the home and in the community because of physical barriers. Both Jayde and Skyla are completely dependent for mobility and require a great deal of support and equipment to assist them, especially as they become bigger and stronger. Their parents would like to use the bursary funds toward the installation of an elevator in their home to allow full access and safe mobility within their home.
We hope these bursary funds assist in allowing the family to install this much needed elevator and that Jayde and Skyla benefit from the improvement in the accessibility of their home.
