Flo Mejia’s Dream of Owning a Bike Comes True, Thanks to HOSA

Article Image Alt Text

“I can’t say thank you enough to the community for helping this little girl’s dream come true,” said Daisy Mejia of Tecumseh as her daughter, Flo, received her first bicycle. “She’d ride her bike all the time if she could,” Daisy added.

Flo Mejia was born with craniosynostosis, which means that the fibrous joints between the bones in her skull were closed or fused and therefore her body didn’t develop normally. Her balance and eyesight were affected by this fusion. Every time Flo would try to ride a regular bike she would lose her balance and then overcorrect and ended up tipping the bicycle over.
