Three-year-old Keagan Robinson doesn’t let his mobility challenges slow him down.
Keagan was diagnosed with Muscular Dystrophy at just six months old, a disease that causes muscles to break down. He is unable to put pressure on his feet or arms because of his diagnosis.
When insurance repeatedly denied claims for Keagan’s necessary equipment, NSM ATP, Zach Stewart, helped them throughout the long process, ultimately helping Keegan get moving with a new chair.
“Now that he has his chair, we get him ready for school in the morning and put him in his chair and he is able to go everywhere by himself,” said Keagan’s mom, Lauren.
Whether going to the zoo, exploring his neighborhood park, reading books (up to 25 per day!), or visiting his grandfather’s authentic Philly-inspired restaurant, Swezey’s Pub, Keagan lives his life to the fullest.
“He and his sister run around the house. He’s able to play with people and do what he wants,” said Lauren. “They were playing tag at school the other day and it was just like he’s running around playing with kids. It makes him so happy, he’s grinning from ear to ear. He’s like, ‘Mama, I’m going to come get you!’”
