Teen With Cerebral Palsy Receives Gift From Organization


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.
