When we first met him Jamoy was an 11 year old boy who lost his left leg due to a birth defect. He lives in the Caribbean and has been treated at the Shriner’s Children’s Hospital in Tampa for the last several years. The Hospital had a tricycle that was the appropriate size for Jamoy but it needed to be modified for use in his island home of Antiqua. The Krewe was able to provide “Fat Wheels” and a helmet which has enabled Jamoy to safely ride his tricycle.
Jamoy Anthony was 11 years old when we gave him "fat wheels" to take back to his home. He is now 13 and has outgrown the bike. His physical therapist at the Shriners' Hospital for Children have asked if the Krewe can buy him a new bike. She recommended a Huskie from Wal-Mart. We also paid to have the bike shipped home.
