Every parent wants the best for their child and will do everything in their power to give them what they need. However, sometimes even the most basic needs can be costly.
This is what Christian and Justin Moore discovered when their 2-year-old son required a walker that insurance wouldn’t cover. Fortunately, a group of Home Depot employees came to the rescue.
Christian and Justin Moore are parents to 2-year-old Logan who has hypotonia, a condition that affects his mobility.
Hypotonia is a medical term that describes low muscle tone which often causes trouble with stability.
Logan’s physical therapist suggested the family purchase a walker to help him get around, but they weren’t sure insurance would cover the cost.
So, Christian and her husband decided to do some research and found a DIY video on YouTube.
“I found a video that looked pretty easy and got the list and took it to Home Depot to see if they had everything we needed,” Christian Moore told CNN.
The family headed to a local Home Depot to purchase DIY materials, but when they arrived a store manager and a few employees insisted on putting the walker together for them.
“They started getting the parts together and told us they would put it together and would not charge us for it,” Christian said. “They told us to go get ice cream and come back in an hour.”
When they returned, the walker was complete and even had Logan’s name written on the front.
“I couldn’t believe they were willing to do that. It took everything I had not to cry because it hasn’t been an easy road for my son. He has had a hard time doing things that would be easy for most children his age,” Christian said.
The 2-year-old could not be more excited.
One of the employees who helped build Logan’s new walker, Jeff Anderson, later shared the story on his Facebook page.
