Texas Boy Receives Wheelchair From New Hampshire Couple's Recently Deceased Granddaughter
Date:1/11/2008

FedEx to Deliver Specialized Equipment Free of Charge

AUSTIN, Texas, Jan. 11 /PRNewswire/ -- The Brain Injury Association of Texas (BIATX) today announced that a six-year-old boy in Austin, Texas with significant physical and mental disabilities due to shaken baby syndrome will receive a specialized wheelchair and other medical equipment from a New Hampshire couple whose 13-year-old granddaughter, also a victim of shaken baby syndrome, passed away on February 13, 2007 at the age of 13.

FedEx will ship all 400-500 pounds of equipment at no charge, picking up the items at the Andrews' home in Union, New Hampshire on Monday, Jan. 14, at 10 a.m. The equipment will be delivered Wednesday, Jan. 16, to the young boy in Austin. (Time of delivery yet to be determined.)

The Austin mother, Lori Carbajal, was driving her car in November when it was rear ended by a hit-and-run driver. In the accident, Carbajal's truck and her son Peanut's $8,000-electric wheelchair were totaled. Without a wheelchair, Carbajal has had to carry her son to get around.

When Barbara Andrews heard about the Carbajal's accident, she was compelled to come to their assistance. Andrew's granddaughter Chrissy was badly shaken and beaten at the age of four months. She was left with severe mental and physical disabilities, was unable to talk or walk, suffered from seizures and had to eat with a feeding tube. Like Chrissy, Peanut was also shaken and beaten when he was four months old. As a result, Peanut suffers blindness, seizures and developmental delays; he is still unable to walk. Andrews, along with her husband, David, and son, Steven (who was Chrissy's aide), decided to give Chrissy's equipment to Peanut.

Chrissy's wheelchair is the exact make, model and size that Peanut needs. In addition to the specialized wheelchair, the Andrews family is donating Chrissy's car seat, a lift with net to help Carbajal transport Peanut from the wheelchair to a couch or be
