Stephen is a current resident of the 2nd house remodeled by the Wishes 4 Me Foundation. The house is for physically challenged young men. The house is called “Steve’s Home”. Steve is a proud individual who values his independence but has Freidriech’s Ataxia (FA); which is a devastating neuromuscular disease. Even with his set-backs, he still works as hard as he can to be independent. Stephen schedules a bi-weekly event at his new home where several of his friends come to play video games. Steve, also, has a part-time job and manages his day-to-day activities for himself. When Steve was younger he was very athletic but as time went on his disease got worse and worse. He does, however, try everything he can to slow his progression by staying as physically active as he can.
Steve has turned his challenges into opportunities. We need to make sure that Steve continues to have a safe, fun and affordable home to live in.
