iCare recently had the pleasure of visiting little Cillian Magee, mum Paula Magee and dad Colin at their home in Caledon to grant an iCare Wish. Cillian is almost 4 and has Cerebral Palsy, he is a lovely little boy full of fun, smiles and laughter. He loves playing with his toy cars and watching Tipping Point on TV, it’s one of his favourite shows.
Like any four-year-old Cillian is growing fast and was getting too big for his current car seat. The family did some research with a car safety centre to find a suitable seat. Cillian can’t use a high back booster because of his lack of core strength and because of special adaptations to meet his needs a new car seat is very expensive. Paula contacted iCare to see if we could help in any way through our iCare Wish initiative. iCare was delighted to be able to help the Magee family by funding the new seat. As well as helping with everyday travel, we hope this leads to plenty of spins in the car and fun days out!
