A great result for a Glenmore Park family.
Nichelle Ritchie has been doing all she can to raise money for her nearly five-year-old daughter Peyton Wilson, who has a rare chromosome disorder.
Now, local community organisations have come together to supply the Glenmore Park family a wheelchair modified van that will improve Peyton’s life.
Previously covered in the Weekender, Peyton was diagnosed with Ring Chromosome 6, which only has 23 other documented cases in the world.
The condition has left the little girl with developmental delays, health issues and an uncertain future with little known for proper treatment plans.
Getting a motorised wheelchair to gain independence, Ms Ritchie had been fundraising through the Facebook page ‘Peyton’s Fight’ to raise over $50,000 for a suitable vehicle to transport her daughter.
“We had done some raffles and had a walk planned but it got cancelled with the weather, so we hadn’t raised that much,” Ms Ritchie said.
