| UPDATED: February 16, 2024 at 10:19 a.m. Leandro Lencina-Medina, an 8-year-old boy with cerebral palsy, recently received a custom-made spaceship wheelchair enclosure during the Joe DiMaggio Children’s Health Speciality Center Magic Wheels and Special Deals event at the Arts and Cultural Center in Boynton Beach. His fantasy shuttle surround was built by the Chariots on Ice nonprofit team of Jeff Cohen of Little Wolf Carpentry, Valerie Mathieu of Chariots on Ice, Nathan Wellman and Roselynn Cohen. The design and build took two and a half months as they used plywood, styrofoam and insulation foam. It included a DVD player in the instrument panel, glowing rocket engines, lower running lights and NASA mission stickers.

They provide free mobility equipment for special needs children up to age 21. “The reveal of the Magic Wheels was a huge success,” Mathieu said. “Leandro received a valuable piece of mobility equipment with a fantasy space shuttle surround. The equipment is called a sit-to-stand and allows him to go from a sitting position to standing, which will aid his circulation, digestion and build core strength. He will be able to use the sit-to-stand for several years. “Due to his cerebral palsy, he is unable to stand on his own. Leandro was selected for his big smile and happy disposition. His wonderful parents Laura and Anthony were thrilled to receive his Magic Wheels and the bonus of a sit-to-stand.” Builder Jeff Cohen stands beside the wheelchair he built for 8-year-old Leandro Lencina-Medina during the Barrier Free 5K at Barrier Free Park in Boynton Beach.
