Kicking Up Hope for Hayden

SWEL’s efforts almost doubled their goal of raising $3,000 with a whopping total of more than $5,200 to go toward a wheelchair-accessible bathroom for Hayden’s home. Hayden underwent brain surgery when he was only one week old, and is currently battling Holoprosencephaly, Quad Spastic Cerebral Palsy and Ensephelacele of the brain. These conditions limit his physical mobility to a wheelchair, but they have not hindered his spirit or his will to fight and survive.
