(2.1.11) Landon Raines is 5 years old and was born with a rare, skeletal muscular disease that eventually causes cardiac and or respiratory failure. Treatment is extremely new and the results are unknown but hopeful. Landon is already beating the odds at his age but has been forced to breathe from a ventilator to support his lungs. He cannot sit or stand. Landon's mother is unable to work due to the level of care that Landon requires. Landon's family would like to put in a wheelchair ramp to the outside door in the back yard. Landon is also in need of a new wheelchair and the family would love to provide him with a power chair to promote independence. Sparrow Cash raised will be used to pay for special medical equipment, travel costs and basic family needs.
