Ben was born with Hypotonia, a medical disorder that causes low muscle strength. As a result, Ben has to work harder than other kids his age to build his strength. His old playroom was small with hardwood floors, leaving him exposed to injury. Change was necessary for progress.
Ben's parents Stephanie and Matt were introduced to The Giving Circle by his aunt, who works in Suffolk's Southeast region. The Giving Circle purchased floormats for his playroom and an outdoor playset so he could regularly practice his mobility and development exercises outside.
