Kaheawai's Story:Kaheawai was born a healthy little boy. It wasn't until he was 15 months old that his mom started to wonder if something was wrong. He was hanging on to things and trying to walk but was not able. At 18 months old, when he still wasn't walking, his mom, Heather, decided to take him back in to see the doctor. After running some tests, he was diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy Spastic Diplesia Kaheawai spent the next several years of his life doing many different forms of therapy to improve his condition. He has undergone 4 different surgeries during that time, each in an attempt to correct problems with his legs and help him to walk better. Today, KK is a bright and gifted 13 yo who has a passion for music and plays the violin. He is also an amazing artist and enjoys the freedom of finally being able to ride a bike. He still uses forearm crutches to walk and needs to stay active to help his body continue to improve. Sparrow Cash raised for KK will help with swimming therapy, an electric chair to help him go longer distances and a new bike to keep him moving.
