We were absolutely thrilled that young Lexie Cooper could join us on our experience day a couple of weeks ago at the British Disabled Waterskii association, what a little star!
What was even more fantastic is the message that we received from Lexie's Mum Charlene. The reason this message was so special, is that Lexie is non-verbal, which means that she uses a communication device to be able to communicate and talk - something similar to that which Dr Stephen Hawking used, which is retina activated. The Knights Foundation helped support Lexie with equipment associated with this 'eye-gaze', which is why the following message was absolutely amazing to receive. Lexie wrote:
"I felt nervous Saturday morning. I did not want to go in the water so I went in the boat instead. I felt proud and happy, but cold and hungry after".
Simply amazing... well done Lexie!
