Harmony's wish comes true
Harmon's special bike with all the controls on the left hand side
We received this amazing message from 11-year-old Harmony’s mum after our brilliant workshop team were able to adapt a Trek Marlin 6 WSD. They put all the controls for the bike on the left-hand side, so that Harmony could work everything with her functioning left hand, this is a double brake lever, 8 speed twist shift for the rear mech and friction shifter for the front.
“Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for all you have done giving Harmony her main wish of being able to ride her bike again. In lockdown 2020 Harmony spent every day for our hour exercise riding a bike. Then in June 2020 she was diagnosed with Ewing sarcoma bone cancer to her arm, hand and lungs. She had 14 cycles of chemotherapy, 38 rounds of radiotherapy, 2 operations to her hands and arm, with bones removed from them. She will never regain normal function of her right hand and arm again. So, to be able to see her ride a bike again today completely broke me down. She was smiling every single second. Thank you so, so much for Harmony’s incredible bike. She can finally be with her friends and feel normal with her special bike.”
We wish you many happy adventures with your friends on your bike Harmony, keep smiling and pedalling!
