Teen With Cerebral Palsy Receives Gift From Organization

By WSVN

A 14-year-old is getting a new ride thanks to the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

Fourteen-year-old Trevor Austin of Coral Springs has always enjoyed riding his relatives’ golf carts. Trevor is visually impaired. He has cerebral palsy, autism and doesn’t speak much. “He was born with a brain bleed, so he’s had quite a few disabilities,” said Kristy Austin, the teen’s mother.

He’s always loved riding golf carts and now, thanks to the Make-A-Wish Foundation, Trevor has his own set of wheels. “He loves riding both my sets of in-laws’ golf carts, loves it,” said Kristy Austin. “My husband has his own business, Allstar Property Maintenance, and whenever he comes here with the mowers, Trevor gets on it and is just beside himself.”

Kara Boehly of the Make-a-Wish Foundation said, “It was a very apropos wish because he loves to feel the wind in his hair.”
