Growing up with Mildred
I'm one of three children my older sister was born with CP and Ms. I grew up in the seventies with my sister in a wheelchair all her life still in it when we were children we would put her in are little red Radio Flyer wagon and walk around for hours. I'll never forget the joy in her face as we drug her everywhere we went in a wagon. As a child it was awful hard to push a wheelchair in some of the places that we went and we could get that little wagon everywhere. My sister was able to fish for the first time in her life cuz we could put it in the wagon get her to the lake. My brother and I took her everywhere in that wagon you see she looked as normal as us without the wheelchair. No I'm not ashamed of my sister never have been never will be but other kids could be so mean. That little red metal wagon meant a lot to us. I'm sure it's somewhere in my mother shed. Oh we we're not rich but we sure felt like it. That wagon was a big part of our childhood. Thank you for allowing me the opportunity to tell you my story. My sister is 57 years old now and is lived way past what she was expected to thank goodness. For the love of Mildred is pure and innocent.

"When we were kids back in the early 90's, we never had toys. But we loved going over my uncle's house in Espanola, New Mexico because he had a big piece of land for my brother, sister, my cousins and I to run around on and make adventures. He also had this awesome metal and wooden Radio Flyer wagon that we loved to load up with stuff to take with us. Some days it would be lunch, drinks and snacks, and some days it would be stuff to build with or old blankets to make forts. I'll never forget that awesome wagon; we used it for everything. Now that I have children of my own, I hope to be able to afford a new sturdy Radio Flyer wagon for them to make some awesome memories with. The brand is great and the products last for years. "
"Hi! Well, let's see.. where do I start? I'm Hanah Roberts. I'm 19 and I currently live in Belton, Texas. I'm originally from a little town in Washington. I have an amazing 7 month old son named Mason. Being so young, we do struggle with money, but we make it work! However, This would be so helpful if we win!! Mason's dad works almost 24-7 and we rarely have time for family. But again we make it work... OK! So I was born August 11, 1994, weighting 9 pounds 9 oz. in Vancouver, Washington. When I was born into this crazy world, I had Hip Dysplasia. It is an abnormal formation of the hip socket. So I got the surgery and got the cute little pink casts on my legs. So being 9 pounds and with casts, my mom decided to buy a little ol' red wagon for me so she can take me places with out having to carry me. Every where I went I was in this wagon, for years at that! The Little cherry red Radio Flyer wagon meant a lot to me for years. Even though I couldn't walk when I was little, it help me get around. So thank you so much! -Hanah Roberts"
