Logan's First Rifton Bike
Logan was born with a complex congenital heart defect known as Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome (HLHS). By 11 months old Logan had endured 3 open-heart surgeries to repair her heart.
Shortly after the third surgery Logan suffered a large stroke affecting the frontal and parietal areas of her brain that involve speech and motor. The stroke left her unable to swallow, use her tongue, speak or move her left side. Despite years of intensive therapy Logan still has balance issues and lacks muscle tone in her core and left side.
Her new therapist had recently put her on a Rifton bicycle and her mother saw a spark in Logan's eyes. She knew that physically a bike would help Logan with her mobility, strength and endurance. Socially, the bike would facilitate inclusion with her peers, allowing her to ride with her 2-1/2 year old sister and neighbors.
Logan turns 7yrs old in a couple weeks and what better way to celebrate than with your very own Rifton bike? Well, she got it!
