The SCOOTER Store Partners With Angel Wings to Donate Power Chair to Teenage Cancer/Stroke Patient
Date:8/1/2008

wheelchair, The SCOOTER Store in partnership with Angel Wings International was able to grant his request -- ending Isaiah's confinement to his room, boosting his spirits and increasing his mobility for the challenges ahead.

Angel Wings International helps families cover the daily basics for up to three months, allowing the family to regroup and refocus. Angels Wings cannot change the diagnosis, but can make it easier for the family to adjust to a new situation.

An excited Isaiah smiled broadly as he received the power wheelchair presented today by The SCOOTER Store as part of its Gift of Mobility program.

"It's a sign of good things to come," said Gina, whose son now awaits a match for a bone marrow transplant and is scheduled for more chemotherapy in the weeks ahead. Unfortunately, his marrow did not match anyone's in his immediate family.

Doug Harrison, CEO and Founder of The SCOOTER Store, said, "Learning of Isaiah's plight through Angels Wings International reaffirmed the reasons why my wife and I started the Gift of Mobility program six years ago. We are happy to provide Isaiah with a power wheelchair and hope it will enhance his outlook and be the lift his spirit needs."

"Because Angels Wings International and The SCOOTER Store came together, Isaiah will be able to experience more freedom and independence," said Colleen Hartsock, President and CEO of Angels Wings International. "This demonstrates that even in times of economic struggles, people can make a difference when they work together for others who, through no fault of their own, find themselves in need."

Mr. Harrison and his wife, Susanna, started the Gift of Mobility program in December 2002 to help people such as Isaiah improve their quality of life by recovering their independence and mobility. Since then, the outreach program has worked with organizations around the world to donate power wheelchairs, scooters and manual wheelchairs valued at more than $200
