I sit back now and see how far Radio Flyer has come. If I remember correctly it was on my 5th birthday, back in 1963, my family was celebrating my special day. Of course it's a day that always keeps you awake the night before, anticipating what is to come. I always thought it would be the most special day in my life. Well this year it really was, I use to ask Santa for a special red wagon everytime I sat on his lap, but it never happened. To my surprise, and it truly was, on this day my dad walked around the side of the house with this brightest red wagon, and the biggest red bow my little eyes ever saw. I was so happy, it was to me a memory I would never forget.. I always thought, I must have done something really good to get this kind of gift for my birthday. There were five kids in our family, my mom stayed home and took care of the kids, while dad went to work everyday in a factory. I look back now, and realize what they had to give up to make one little girl the happiest girl on the block. I thank God everyday, for having the best mom & dad in the whole world. Now I do this for my kids, and my grand kids as often as I can. Thanks for giving me the chance to at least try to do the same for my 2 grand daughters.

"My son D was diagnosed with a brain tumor when he was 3 months old. He was in and out of the hospital for 3 months. It was very stressful for him as he had to stay in the hospital bed and wasn't able to get off the bed. One day, a wonderful the nurse brought in a Radio Flyer wagon and offered to cushion it up so he can lay on it instead of his hospital bed. It was the best day of D's life. We were able to wheel him around the unit and even to the hospital cafe where he gets to look at something besides the boring hospital ceiling. He became so attached to it that he even took naps in it. D's brain tumor was removed 3 months later. He is now tumor free but still dealing with physical problems associated with the brain tumor. He recently just had 2 surgeries which affected his ability to walk. He would love to be able to sit in a Radio Flyer wagon again and go out for a stroll without feeling different from other toddlers who are able to run around. A Radio Flyer wagon will give him a chance to be just a kid!"
