Lions Biggest BBQ - 27 April 2014

Breanna Medcalf

The Lake Currimundi-Kawana Lions had the privilege of meeting a remarkable young lady by the name of Breanna Medcalf.  Breanna was born on 26 June 2002, a happy cheerful baby who always smiled and giggled. 

After an initial misdiagnosis Breanna at 3½ years was diagnosed with having a severe spinal cord injury possibly from birth.  Breanna and her mum Marie spoke at a dinner meeting where the members were moved by her story.  Breanna plays the violin, sings in the choir, horse riding and is school captain.   Due to her condition Breanna needed a wheelchair that would also allow her to stand for 2 hours every day.  When the Club met Peter, Marie and Breanna had raised $33,500 for the wheelchair without Government assistance.  Now the funds for the wheelchair have been raised Marie and Peters focus is to set up a trust fund for Breanna so that she will always be taken care of in the future.  The Lake Currimundi-Kawana Lions wanted to help and at the Changeover dinner, pledged $5000 towards Breannas trust fund and have agreed to provide ongoing financial support in 2013-14.

The Club donated one of these wheelchairs to the Disabled Surfers Association. Value $4,500.
