Last Thursday, February 9th, the Lancaster Chapter of AMBUCS presented an AmTryke to Javion Rodriquez at the Schreiber Pediatric Center. Javion is an 8 years old, Lancaster City boy that has cerebral palsy and walks with a walker. He is currently learning to use crutches. Javion underwent Orthopedic Surgery at A. I. Dupont in July 2016 and while there used an adaptive tricycle in rehab. He has used one again at Schreiber and loves it and has done very well with the pedaling and steering. Javion has a big smile and was extremely happy and appreciative to receive his own AmTryke that he will be able to use at his home and in the neighborhood. His therapist, Deanna Adair indicated that by using the AmTryke he will develop more strength and confidence. AMBUC members attending the presentation were Rolland King III, Ben Bowman, Derrick Stephenson and Bruce Schmoyer. Javion’s family including grandmother and sister were also there.
We had an amazing turnout at our social in the city on March 15, 2016. This event produced a lot of laughs, conversation, appetizers, and fun! Thank you to all the came out, and our social leaders Mike & Cindy Rohrbach for organizing the festivities.
Special thanks to Lancaster AMBUCS members Bruce Schmoyer, Ben Bowman, Kenneth Trauger, and Occupational Development Center AmTryke Representative (Tom Hodges) for presenting Noah with his 1st AmTryke on Friday, March 4, 2016 at Schreiber Pediatric Center.
