Rebecca Orr and her husband Marty Parzynski invented the chair they’ve dubbed “Bella’s Bumba” after their niece Bella, who is paralyzed from the knees down. Walkin’ Pets help Bella’s Bumbas with wheel donations for their innovative chairs for children with Spina Bifida.
Child’s Mobility Chair Inspired by Love
Rebecca and Marty got the inspiration for the Bella’s Bumba chair out of love for their niece. They wanted to do something to help make her life easier. Insurance companies do not pay for wheelchairs for very young children (generally under 4 or 5 years old) because they grow out of the chairs so quickly.
Consequently, many children suffering with Spina Bifida or other grave illnesses are not able to get around very well. The invention of Bella’s Bumba solves that problem.
What Is a Bella’s Bumba?
Bella’s Bumba is comprised of a small platform with a plastic seat (called a mega seat) affixed to it. Each side then has wheels attached, and presto! Mobility!
Rebecca and Marty were so gratified to see what a difference the chair made in Bella’s life that they wanted to help other children with Spina Bifida and other ailments that affect mobility. The couple began a Facebook page to let others know about the Bella’s Bumba chair.
But it didn’t stop there. They offered to make the chair for familiesfree of charge.
Rebecca contacted a staff member at Walkin’ Pets to inquire about purchasing wheels for children waiting for their chairs.
