MOSCOW, Idaho, June 4 /PRNewswire/ — Teenagers with
Muscular Dystrophy (MD) are inspiring, and Isaac Aragon is no exception. Aragon is a
17-year-old high school student who has not let MD slow him down
Although he visits Moscow Mountain Sport & Physical Therapy
on a regular basis, he has not had the aid of power mobility
equipment and has had suffered through some falls. His physical
therapist, Joanna Alford MPT, contacted The SCOOTER Store after
noticing how limited his balance and walking had become. His PT for
nearly three years, she believed he was at risk for more falls and
possibly serious injury when walking.
Yesterday afternoon, The SCOOTER Store along
with the ADL Foundation, provided
Aragon with a Pride Legend three-wheel scooter at his home. On hand
from the company’s Seattle
operations was Healthcare Relations Consultant Bob Croft to make
the presentation. The scooter was donated under The SCOOTER Store
Gift of Mobility program, which provides mobility equipment and
assistance to those who do not have the financial resources or
insurance to obtain power wheelchairs and scooters.
“Isaac is a typical high-school student in all ways but one.
Now, his limited mobility can no longer hinder him from going to
college,” said Doug Harrison,
