Junior Jaycees hope to give disabled boy a lift with a new lightweight wheelchair

Hollywood resident Jaden, 7, has cerebral palsy. He is unable to walk and is dependent on his wheelchair. The Greater Hollywood Junior Chamber Jaycees Foundation is now raising funds to purchase a chair lift and plan to present it to him at their April 11 General Membership meeting, 7 p.m.

The Jaycees want to get Jaden the Body Up Evolution Heavy Duty Lift. It can be used as a bath chair, commode chair, indoor wheelchair or car transfer chair, and its stabilization straps will keep him upright. It is lightweight and will easily offer Jaden’s caretakers the capability to safely lift him from any position. The chair’s cost is estimated at $2,900.

If you would like to help Jaden get a chair lift, checks can be made payable to Hollywood Jaycees Foundation and mailed to the Jaycee Hall, 2930 Hollywood Blvd., Hollywood, FL 33020. 

There has also been a Go Fund Me Page set up towards this effort:
