WILMINGTON, MA – Can you take 30 seconds out of your day to help a very special 9 year-old Wilmington resident?
Ethan Gentry suffers from two very rare terminal diseases, Leukodystrophy and Muscular Dystrophy.
Ethan’s mother has recently entered him into the “Great Bike Giveaway,” a contest which provides adaptive bikes to special children.
Ethan’s mom writes, “You would never know by seeing [Ethan’s] smiling face and his love for life [that he has the diseases]. He brightens everyone’s day that he comes into contact with…. Ethan struggles to walk short distances, falls constantly due to his ataxia, and has 20-50 seizures daily, yet he never complains!”
She continues: “I would love to see Ethan be able to play outside with his siblings and friends and be able to ride a bike. Not only will it be fun for him, it will also allow him to strengthen his leg muscles.”
