24 Mar See us on DIYSOS BBC1 Thursday 31st March 9pm
BBC1 is to re-show one of the most moving episodes of DIYSOS when young Noah Wall and his family have their cold/unsafe home transformed by teams of willing volunteers. We at Omi were proud to gift Noah an omiVista floor as part of that re-build and were thrilled at his response to it. His Mum Shelly, has kept in touch with us and is forever grateful for the equipment that gives him so much pleasure.
Recently we returned to Abbeytown in Cumbria to visit the delightful Noah Wall and give him exciting new content for his omiVista system as an early 4th birthday present. Here we see one of our OMI team members, Wayne, sharing a special moment with him and below popping a ‘virtual’ birthday balloon.
Noah who was born with severe spina bifida, hydrocephalus, only 2% functioning brain and is paralysed from the chest down has stunned experts with his incredible zest for life and determination to achieve.
The family believe the omiVista floor has motivated Noah to stretch, crawl, play and communicate everyday.
His Mum Shelly says ‘He now knows all of his colours, numbers and shapes and can even count to 20…he’s always singing and dancing’.
4yr old Noah continues to amaze everyone with his progress. We feel privileged to have been a part of Noah’s story and are delighted that our gift has meant so much to the family. (#hugsfornoah.co.uk)
