“Every small victory is a big victory. We are just really excited and pleased that she can have a bike of her very own to use at home and continue to help with her strength and continue to help gain function along the way," NIkki Williams, Hilary’s therapist said.

The Louisville Kiwanis Club, a group of volunteers dedicated to raising funds for projects helping children in the area, presented the bicycle to Hilary during a school presentation.
