During Brady’s countless visits to hospitals and specialists, Sherrie and Michael realized that the children in pediatric hospitals often traveled from one end of the hospital to the next dragging a heavy and scary chemotherapy pumping unit. It was very RARE for Brady not to be hooked up to his IV, even if he was not getting a transfusion or chemo. It is also difficult for children to be confined to a bed or sit still for long, grueling chemotherapy sessions.
Designed by the Hugs for Brady team, the Brady Buggy’s are used in pediatric care settings to provide children with a safe, familiar means of transportation within a hospital. After Brady passed and the Hugs for Brady Foundation was formed, Michael and Sherrie Wells developed the Brady Buggy. “It’s important because transportation equals freedom and happiness, especially when it is SAFE!” says Sherrie Wells. “The wagon we had used with Brady was a “traditional” wagon and we used surgical tape to connect the IV pole to the back axle of the wagon. IT WAS INCREDIBLY DANGEROUS but we felt it was our only option, we could not keep him “captive” in a hospital crib for 10 months, that would have been insanity for all of us!
The idea for the wagon was Michael’s. I found the wagon maker. And we worked together on themes, designs, logistics, blue prints and sketches to insure quality, safety, and to make sure that any new parent could EASILY hook up the IV pole in a matter of seconds!”
The Brady Buggy’s have a trailer hitch to tow the children’s IV poles—allowing kids to be mobile—even during chemotherapy treatments. The children can sit in the Brady Buggy and bring their favorite stuffed animal or a snack along for the ride.
