Lexi Kaiser is a triplet born with cerebral palsy, a debilitating condition that effects how Lexi walks, talks, eats and plays. While her brother and sister play outside, her grandfather said Lexi is left trying to keep up. “She has a brother and two sisters, and they all ride bicycles, and of course, she is not going to be able to do that. But with this tricycle and a little bit of help, she will be right in there with them," Roger Kaiser said. “I remember her saying, 'I want to go, I want to ride a bicycle.' And, of course, she will say, 'Please don’t leave me ' and those three little kids will come back and get her.”
