Steen’s Story

Pillar:  Lifesaving Medical Equipment

 Steen is a 5-year-old boy from North Vancouver who was diagnosed with a seizure disorder, global developmental delay and autism around the same time that he began taking medication for epilepsy. Variety assisted Steen with a specialized enclosure bed for his own safety as he often has epileptic seizures at night while his sleep disorder causes him to frequently night walk. The custom-built bed with its soft mesh enclosure has made all the difference for Steen. It prevents him from falling, sleep walking or hurting himself by thrashing against the wall.
