Quintana Solis Family

Meet 3 year old Benjamin from Didsbury.

The Quintana Solis family lives in Didsbury, originally from Mexico.  They have 2 daughters and 2 sons.

Their youngest Benjamin was born with Achondroplasia.  Achondroplasia is a genetic form of dwarfism due to a problem of bone growth and development.  Achondroplasia is a common form of dwarfism of short stature and happens in 1 / 30,000 births.  Many people erroneously assume that individuals and Achondroplasia have limited abilities.  It is very important to increase awareness with educational programs and to take proactive steps to foster self-esteem in children with Achondroplasia.

Hope4mvckids provided Benjamin with a specialized toilet seat for home and school.  We also provided a stool so he can reach the toilet.  Lastely we provided a faucet adaption equipment with an extender so Benjamin is able to use the faucet for drinks.
