Little Red Stories: A 26-Week Premie Finds Joy

Ian and Aidan were born prematurely on December 9, 2015, in Midlothian, Virginia. Heartbreakingly, Aidan's lungs gave out after four hours. Meanwhile, Ian was rushed to the NICU, where he spent the next 73 days. He came home on oxygen support and needed it for the next six months as he grew bigger and stronger.

 

Upon graduating off of oxygen support, his parents wanted to mark Ian’s landmark. They decided the best way to do so was to get him outdoors to explore. Having heard about our 4-in-1 trikes, they purchased and assembled one of their own. Then, they took Ian on his first joy-filled ride. See him traveling along trails by trike here.

 

We’re so happy to be a part of Ian’s first ride and thrilled to hear he’s continuing to thrive!
