At 13 months old, most toddlers still make their first steps, waddling insecurely across the room into their mom’s waiting hands. Unfortunately, Evelyn Moore can’t do that. After a cancerous tumor crushed her spinal cord, she was left paralyzed from the waist down, but if you thought she was immobile, you’d be so wrong.
Thanks to her dad who managed to design a wheelchair for her out of a baby chair and a cutting board, Evelyn is as fast as most of her friends, if not faster. She’s been using it since she was 7 months old and her mom says they had to install a speed bump in the living room so she wouldn’t go too fast.
