Horse Therapy for Cole

posted in: Testimonials | 0

Our son Cole was diagnosed with brain and spinal tumors at the age of 9 and has been on chemo now 7 1/2 years. We starting talking with a social worker at CHOP about Cole and what he’s doing.  We explained about how we started him in horseback riding lessons!  The therapist at CHOP had started to notice a change for the good in Cole’s posture and flexibility. We also mentioned the horseback riding.

We reached out to our health insurance company and between us and the nurses and doctors got the run around with NO help. So explaining this to the social worker, she then reached out to your foundation!

Cole is limited in activities due to being misdiagnosed for 5 months, he lost some of his sight in 1 eye. Horrible. Horseback riding is not a cheap activity BUT for his mental and physical state we are trying to continue!! Thanks to your support we are excited to be able to continue Cole’s horseback riding which we feel is so very important for Cole’s well-being!

We are beyond grateful for this gift!  Thank you from the bottom of our hearts! We don’t know you personally but you must be amazing people! We are forever grateful.

Below is a picture of Cole doing what he is growing to love and thrive at!
