Joellen and Ray Demara love kids! Their family includes 14 children, 8 of whom are adopted and have special needs. Two of the Demara children, 14-year-old Kayden and 16-year-old Kyler, brought this group into the Variety Family. Kayden has Spina Bifida and cannot walk for long periods of time. He enjoys swimming and playing wheelchair basketball. Kyler has Cerebral Palsy and requires a wheelchair for his mobility. He is non-verbal, but his expressive face and smile light up a room!
Kayden received his sports wheelchair with help from Variety earlier this year and Kyler received his new adaptive stroller! This stroller is much lighter than his power wheelchair and will allow for “off-roading” with his brothers and sisters at the farm.
