Earlier this year Ted almost lost his life to an aggressive Aspergillus infection which often isn't survived. The medication for this doesn't react well with the chemotherapy either and causes a high risk of muscle and ligament damage. Ted bravely fought through but as a result, he was registered as disabled and over the last five months has learned to crawl, cruise and waddle again.
Ted’s physiotherapist recommended that he rides a bike to get his feet flexing correctly again. The trouble was, most children’s bikes weigh almost as much as Ted does and his muscles are simply not strong enough to ride them. After a little research, Ted’s mum found the ‘Isla Bike’, a specially designed, lightweight bike for children like Ted. Because of Ted’s condition, mum and dad both now work part time and simply couldn't afford to purchase this bike for Ted, so mum sent a heartfelt letter to Vicky Nash here at Lennox and we gladly purchased Ted his new bike. Now there’s no stopping him, literally!
