You Can Help Replace Walker Stolen From 10-Year-Old Girl With Cerebral Palsy


Edgemoor – Yesterday we told you about a 10-year-old Edgemoor girl, suffering from Cerebral Palsy, who had her walker stolen by from her front yard. The mother of the young girl has started a gofundme page to replace the walker.

As many of you know or may have seen on the news my daughter Kirsten’s walker was stolen from in front of our house. And since it was put out on the news we have had so much love and so many people have contacted me on how they can help donate so we have started this gofund me page so anyone who would like to help donate towards a new one that will accommodate her needs. Thank you to everyone for the outpouring of love from Kirsten and her whole family.

Original Story

Edgemoor – Last Thursday, November 30, Patrol Officers from the New Castle County Police Department were dispatched to the unit block of North Rodney Drive reference a theft report, according to M/Cpl. Heather Carter.

Carter said when they arrived they learned that the 10-year-old victim suffered from Cerebral Palsy and is confined to a wheelchair or a walker. The victim’s mother reported that she wheeled the victim out to the car in her walker, placed the victim in the car and then drove away leaving the walker in the front yard. When she realized her mistake approximately 20 minutes had lapsed. The victim’s mother contacted her husband who was still at the house and when he looked outside the walker was gone.

The walker is described as a 3-foot tall custom royal blue walker with a fold-down seat.

Unlike other news organizations, First State Update hasn’t put up a paywall. We want to provide the news to as many readers as possible.

Our readership has grown far beyond our greatest expectations in such a short period of time.

In less than two years we have become one of Delaware most popular and  trusted news sources.

To keep this thing firing on all cylinders we need to do some serious updates and upgrades to our equipment.

That takes cash. Digital advertising revenue has declined in recent years as advertisers have begun to pay less for advertising and readers have begun using adblocker software.

Rather than promote ads that don’t get clicked on we are increasingly removing ads in favor of reader funded support.

If just a fraction of First State Update’s readers pitched in a couple of bucks we would be set for a while. You can support First State Update for as little as $1.
