Hi, this is Ruben.
Ruben its 18 years old. He is my brother. He is a kindly kid, very loved and he need our help.
Cerebral palsy at 99%
He can't walk
He can't talk
He can't do any kind of comunication with other people
He can't seat by himself (only in a special seat or special wheelchair)
He doesn't have control of his limbs or his head.
He doens't eat by himself (only with a gastric tube feeding device)
He still wears diapers since day one.
Ruben have a special wheelchair, purchased 8 years ago, but right now the wheelchair its to small for him.
For our mother to be able to buy a new hellchair, made specificaly for him, she needs 8.000€ wich its to expensive for her.
That new wheelchair is very needed, because my brother is to big and it is uncomfortable for him to be seated there, where is his for a long part of the day.
I came here to ask for your help. Of any type. I'm from Portugal and if you have any type of question, please contact me at: [email protected]
