After a cancer diagnosis in 2021 Molly, was left unable to play soccer. She found herself at a loss. She didn’t know how she could ever be active again and missed so much being part of a team. Molly soon found wheelchair basketball and fell in love. Although basketball was new, the feeling of being on a team and her competitive nature soon kicked in. At the end of her first season on basketball Molly was fitted for a JAAM chair through their grant program. She’s got many more seasons to play and can’t wait to see where her new chair will take her.
Mo started playing wheelchair basketball in 2019. His coaches recognized his talents right away and he was able to get a customized ball chair through the JAAM Grant process in 2021. Here is what Mo had to say when he got his chair “ I just picked my chair and wanted to say thank you so much once again me and my mom are really grateful for you guys. I still can’t stop smiling right now! The chair fit me so good, my whole game is gonna change to better next year💪🏽“
Mo is starting his sophomore year at the University of Illinois and currently plays for the men’s wheelchair basketball team.
Lyndsie started playing wheelchair basketball in 2019. When she switched to a more competitive team in 2021. We were blessed when we got the grant for a basketball chair for her from JAAM. She absolutely loved making the chair hers. She has progressed so much and is able to do what she loves in a good fit! We are so grateful for JAAM. She will move on to the Ability360 women’s team next season.
Will has been an Ability360 athlete since 2018. He started his basketball journey at an early age; he was very reserved young man but through sports has turned into one of our senior players and leaders on our Varsity team. He’s become someone our younger players look up to as well as look to as an example. It’s been amazing watching him grow over the years and Will is setting his sights on college when he graduates high school in a few years and his coaches are confident in him achieving that goal.
