Aiden Jones and his family were referred to WA Charity Direct by Rocky Bay. Aiden is 18 years old and lives with a condition called Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. This is a progressive neuromuscular disability resulting in deterioration of mobility and function. Aiden currently uses an electric wheelchair to get around and relies on his parents for most tasks.
The Jone’s family van was ageing and was in need of replacement. Recently Aiden’s best friend tragically passed away and the Moir family offered to sell their modified van to the Jones Family for a very good price. In conjunction with monies received from a Disability Equipment Grant, WA Charity Direct donated the remaining balance to finalise the purchase of the special purpose Toyota Van.
