Malena is 6 years old and has been diagnosed with Spinal Muscular Atrophy Type 2. She has never been able to walk and learned to drive her mechanical wheelchair at the age of two! One thing she mentioned in the video is how she gets embarrassed when she bumps the walls down the hallway because of the loud noises it makes. Currently Malena sleeps with her mom and dad but we’d love to change that – and a bedroom remodel might be just the motivation she needs!
In getting to know Malena we have found out that her Dream is to have an Under the Sea Bedroom with a Clam Shell Bed! Her parents, Nina and Mauro have committed to switching rooms with her so that we can give her an ADA approved bedroom and bathroom so that she doesn’t “bump into walls anymore.”
