Bruno, Advanced Rehab grant wish

Friday, December 27, 2013

OCONOMOWOC, Wis. – Bruno Independent Living Aids is donating a “Joey” platform lift to Sam Wedig, a 10-year-old with cerebral palsy. The lift will allow Sam’s grandparents, Coleen and Mark Wedig, who are raising him, to take him to school and church, and to watch the Iowa Cubs baseball team. Advanced Rehab Technologies in Urbandale, which supplied Sam with his power wheelchair, will install the lift in the Wedig’s Dodge Caravan. Bruno and Advanced Rehab learned about Sam through a local radio station’s “Make-A-Wish” contest. As part of the contest, Sam will also throw out the first pitch at a Cubs game this spring.
