WonderFold Cares | April 2022

It’s our favorite time of the month again. WonderFold Cares has developed so much and we couldn't be more grateful to give to more families in need. If you or a loved one is in need of one of our Wonderful Wagons, submit a story! We would love to hear from you and hopefully you or your loved one will be selected to win one of our stroller wagons. For the month of April, we had the honor of giving stroller wagons to multiple families and organizations. 

WonderFold has had the privilege of donating to numerous nonprofits and organizations where we gifted outr W1 models for auctions for organizations such as the Chicago Autism Light It Up Blue Event; the TCP Care Auction where Wonderfold was actually one of the top three performers and was able to raise $5000 to help those diagnosed with Intrahepatic Cholestasis of Pregnancy; the Charlotte Schwieger Leukemia Auction; and Gigi’s Playhouse.

Here are some of the stories from our recipients last month:

Jessica is one busy woman. With her fourth children coming this July, her and her husband have a lot on their plate. That’s why Jessica’s best friend nominated her for a WonderFold Wagon. The two women have been best friends since they were five. That is 24 (!) years of non stop laughter, support and love. The two met in pre-school and are now navigating the tribulations of adulthood and motherhood. Jessica is now a full-time mom after being a preschool teacher and her husband wears a lot of hats - namely, a fulltime firefighter, EMT, an ER psych department employee and a basketball coach. Phew! That’s a lot of hats! And we also cannot forget that, even while pregnant and being a mom of three, Jessica offers to help other families who may be returning back to the office with childcare. This couple doesn’t stop! But everyone needs some rest and relaxation, especially this couple. They love to have walks in the park, go to the pond and do some fishing, and visit their dad at the fire station. With three babies and a fourth one on the way, there aren’t a lot of options for larger families. And with Jessica and her husband’s hands so full, they deserve to have them free on their family outings. Which is perfect with their brand new X4 Stroller Wagon! With the weather being warmer and a July baby, this family is gonna have a great summer. 

The Rijksens have traveled a long way for their family. The family emigrated from Aruba to the United States in search of better healthcare opportunities for their daughter Lunah. Lunah had been denied life-saving interventions, including a heart repair procedure, in the Netherlands and Colombia. In Aruba, even with socialized medical insurance, Lunah with her T18 diagnosis have not been able to get the treatments that she needed in time. The Rijksens had to leave their entire life including their other kids and family back in Aruba for the care of little Lunah. But everyone is on the same page that Lunah’s recovery is top priority. The family made the move to the US in 2016 and since then, Lunah is getting the care that she desperately needed in Utah. Though there are still some uncertainties with Lunah’s medical challenges. Despite her medical journey, Lunah is happy and healthy and loves to be outdoors. The Rijksens want Lunah to live her life to the fullest. Wonderfold gifted the Rijksens a W1 Stroller Wagon for Lunah and all her adventures.

Ashley Surch is a mother of two little kiddos with a spouse in the military. While her partner is deployed, Ashley loves to take her children out on adventures. To the park, museums, pools, the world’s their oyster. And we love to see it. With a partner that’s away all the time, it’s tough being alone with two children. The Surches were gifted a X2 Stroller Wagon for all their adventures.

Angie and her husband and their two kiddos, Gianna and Ronan, are a military family who are simply trying to make ends meet. Ronan is almost two but had a terrifying experience at the start of his life. He was only three days old when he was rushed to the hospital and kept in the PICU for almost a month. After months of countless tests, Ronan was diagnosed with Nonketotic Hyperglycinemia which is a rare metabolic disorder. The first year of Ronan’s life was tough to say the least and it led Angie to staying at home to be with the kids. And with her husband being deployed and living on a single income, the Ebojo’s are making the most out of their situation. Ronan continues to surprise his family and is taking on his medical challenges on the chin. In June of last year, Ronan was diagnosed with another rare disease - Kawasaki disease. With all the therapy, tests, and numerous doctor’s visits, Ronan’s first two years of his life hasn't been the easiest. And being a military family, the Ebojo’s don’t have a lot of family close by making trips to the doctors a little harder as little Gianna joins them. Taking two kids, along with all of their belongings, including medications is a lot on Angie. But with their brand new W2 Stroller Wagon, the Ebojo’s trips to the doctors will be a little bit easier.

Whew! Another month down, folks! If you or a loved one - whomever that may be, are in need of a WonderFold Wagon, we would love to hear from you. Submit your story here. Parenting is hard enough and without some resources, it can further push us. A WonderFold wagon can make it a little bit easier. I said a “little bit”. See you again in May!

This is our second time submitting, but this time it is a lot different. My sweet grandson was born with down syndrome, and also a heart defect called Tetralogy of fallot. He is two years old and the sweetest little boy in the whole world.
However, just a couple weeks ago, we had the most devastating news given to us as he was in pain, and not wanting to use his legs. Luca was diagnosed with B cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia. It has been extremely difficult to stomach this. He started chemo almost 3 weeks ago, but still has a ton of leg pain and will not walk. He also is going to have to go through physical therapy and rehabilitation to strengthen his legs. We recently started taking him on wagon rides that the hospital provides. He loves this so much. It is his comfort. A family member of ours has a four seat lux wagon that we recently used when she came for a visit. It was perfect for Luca, all of his pillows, his blankets all of his medical equipment plus giving him a lots of room for himself. However, at this time we cannot afford to purchase a wagon because of the cost of everything that comes with his leukemia. This would be such a huge help for our family and for little Luca as it’s going to be 2 1/2 years of treatment and therapy. You really want the best for our grandbaby and want to make sure he could be transported comfortably but still be able to enjoy life. He had a smaller wagon I believe it was jeep, grand and lower to the ground that he had fallen out of while laying in, so we definitely are looking for something better. We love the wonderfold wagon and would be honored to receive one. Thank you for your consideration.

My husband and I struggled starting a family for many years! But we have finally been bless with twins! Our sweet boy and girl who are 4 have changed our lives for the best! We love traveling places far and near! We often get looks and questions and comments about our hands being full, haha. If only they could see our hearts! We would love a Wonderfold wagon to make traveling and park trips much easier! We love seeing what your wagons have to offer and how you’ve thought of everything when it comes to being out and about with kids of all ages! We hope to hear from you!! Thank you for your time!

I would like to nominate my fiance for a wagon. Her name is Kurra Christiansen here in Pleasant View, Utah. The reason I think that she needs to be nominated is that our oldest son is 7 years old and he has Autism, ADHD, and also has Neurofibromatosis 1 (NF 1), which is where tumors grow on the nerves and sometimes can grow on a nerve in a joint and can not be removed and also can grow on the brain. NF 1 is affecting him (Mathias) to were he was late in developing walking and up until about a year to year and a half ago he was having a very hard time running. Some days it is hard for him to walk any distance or going up a set of stairs. The NF 1 is also affecting his hips as well, not to mention that she also has NF 1 and right now she is pregnant with our third child.

This the reason I think that she would love this wagon if she is picked. I just wanted to thank you for taking the time to read this.
