The Story

Broomall, PA

Brian and Brouge Ramos are the loving parents of three active little boys and one special needs angel. As a family, they love the outdoors. They enjoy going on hikes and taking trips to the beach, even though it is two hours away. Their youngest son, Kent, was born with severe physical limitations, which have hindered their ability to get out too often. The Ramos family needs a handicap accessible van to accommodate his physical needs.

Brian and Brouge first discovered there was something wrong with Kent when Brouge’s first ultrasound revealed the baby had two clubbed feet. After extensive tests and scans in multiple hospitals, Kent was diagnosed with microcephaly, lissencephaly, and cerebellar hypoplasia meaning his brain had formed too small and too smooth. Over the past year, Kent’s condition has manifested in every aspect of his life. He is unable to eat and needs to be fed through a feeding tube. He has very little muscle control which prevents him from being able to sit, roll, or even hold his head up. Due to his condition, he has been hospitalized seven times. “It’s been hard. Super hard,” said Brouge, “But God gave us Kent for a purpose. If He thinks we can do it, we can do it.”

The biggest challenge for the Ramos family currently is transportation. Kent has been fitted for a wheelchair stroller, but it will not fit in their current car even if it is folded up. He has speech, vision, and physical therapies, as well as neurology and gastroenterology appointments, that he needs to get to. The family has other daily needs as well that requires them to get out, but it can be difficult since they must take Kent with them.

Kent’s parents hope to raise $20,000 through RedBasket.org to help purchase a 2015 Toyota Sienna with wheelchair accessibility. The van costs $50,000. “The truth is, if we don't get this van, I have no way of transporting my son,” said Brouge. Please consider making a tax-deductible donation and help Kent and his family go on many new adventures. Share this story today!
