It took Bella only a week or two to learn how to maneuver it by herself. WEBSTER, NY - Thanks to the efforts of a Webster couple, young children with disabilities are enjoying newfound mobility.

For the last year, Rebecca Orr and her husband, Marty Parzynski, have been building miniature “Bella’s Bumba” wheelchairs for children throughout the country who suffer from spina bifida, a congenital defect in which part of the spinal cord is exposed through a gap in the backbone. The condition commonly causes paralysis of the lower limbs.

Their passion to help was sparked when their niece Bella was born in July 2015. When she and her siblings came for a visit last summer from their Buffalo home, Rebecca and Marty were troubled by Bella’s inability to move around and interact with other children.

“We were having to pick her up and put her around the yard so she could be with other kids,” Rebecca said. They would even have to turn and face her toward anyone talking to her.

“She was captured in her body,” Marty added.

For children as young as Bella, mobility options are limited. Insurance doesn’t pay for wheelchairs for children younger than 4 because they outgrow them so fast. Commercial versions of the Bumba chair, called a ZipZac, can cost more than $1,000. That’s a huge burden for families already dealing with significant medical bills.

Then Rebecca and Marty saw a pin on Pinterest showing how to make their own, and Marty got to work. Using a commercially available “Bumbo” infant seat, two 12-inch tires from a child’s bicycle and some spare parts, in no time he had built the very first “Bella’s Bumba.”

It took a few weeks for Bella to get the hang of it, but before long, the child was using her miniature wheelchair to navigate around their home or a playground safely all by herself, grinning from ear to ear the whole time. She was finally mobile.

“The chair made a huge difference in her life,” Bella’s father, Jeffrey Shorr, said. “Having the chair allowed us to take her outside, and she could interact with others rather than our holding her or sitting her in a chair.”

Once Marty and Rebecca saw the difference the chair made in their niece’s life, they started sharing Bella’s successes through their personal Facebook page, and then on a spina bifida parents group page.

“You see those families, how they’re struggling ... looking for used items for their children to gain mobility,” Rebecca said. “They’re stuck in strollers (and) they’re stuck wherever you sit them. ... I thought, 'I want to get this away from our personal page and get it onto its own page.'”

They set up a Bella’s Bumbas Facebook page, and word started to spread. So far they’ve made and shipped five of the specialty chairs all around the country, and have pending orders for 22 more.

Their efforts are changing lives of young children, and their parents, in countless ways. Helping a non-mobile child become mobile is just the beginning.

Now that she has her Bella’s Bumba chair, Jeff said that his daughter is much happier in general. But her coordination and upper body strength have also improved significantly, which helped her learn to crawl and, very soon, use a walker.

Basically, her Bella’s Bumba has “brought progress to something that seemed like progress would never happen,” Jeff said.

“She’s one of the kids now,” Rebecca added.

Liam Payne's ex congratulates him on baby with girlfriend Cheryl .
Liam Payne's ex Sophia Smith has congratulated him on welcoming a baby with girlfriend Cheryl. The One Direction singer dated fashion student Sophia for two years until they split in October, 2015. He quickly moved on from the end of the relationship and began dating former X Factor judge Cheryl in early 2016. The couple shocked fans when the 33-year-old Girls Aloud star fell pregnant just a few months into their new romance, and the pair welcomed a baby boy in March (17). Sophia has no bad feelings towards her famous ex, and told British newspaper The Sun she had even messaged her 23-year-old ex to congratulate him on the birth of his first child. "I messaged to congratulate him,” she said at Coachella Festival’s Revolve party. "We’re all good. I’m happy for him." Sophia has come a long way since she first commented on Liam and Cheryl's relationship last year (16), calling their budding romance weird. "It's so weird. I knew about them a little bit ago, but who thought it would actually come out?" she told Now magazine. When asked if she felt okay about the new couple, Sophia added: "Yeah. I'm okay. I'm all good." Cheryl and Liam confirmed the arrival of their bundle of joy on 25 March (17), by sharing a picture of him cradling the newborn son against his chest on Instagram on the eve of Mothering Sunday in the U.K. Liam has since thanked fans for their well wishes on Twitter and he later joked about how many times his son's nappy has needed to be changed.
