This is the story of Sharina Jones, who suffered a gunshot wound as a kid. When the incident happened she was merely 5 years old, and had big plans for the future. But, the bullet that hit her left her paralyzed for good.
Having legs and then suddenly losing them can be as traumatic as we cannot imagine. The mix of emotions and the realization of the life ahead is simply horrifying.
It has been three decades and Jones was already pregnant for the first time. However, her biggest worry was whether she would be able to take carry of her baby accordingly.
Then, a high school student met up with Aiden Kain, who told her he wanted to team up with Jones and present to her his wheelchair stroller.
Kain had already worked for six years on the endurance, outlook and practicality. Now, he had a prototype.
“It was great to meet her and talk to her about what she wants and doesn’t want,” Kain explained to The Michigan Catholic. “Talking to her was a big help, figuring out the workability of the device, where to put a diaper bag, whether or not she could unhook the stroller and how she can move around in the chair.” In a separate interview with Today, he added, “It was extremely exciting and rewarding to see Sharina using it.”
Let’s have a look at the stroller itself in the video below:
