COLUMBIA, S.C. (WIS) - Pediatrics patient Cailum Gibson, age 2, received the first mini car to be presented to a Midlands patient from the Go Baby Go program at Prisma Health Children’s Hospital.

Calium received his car on Tuesday, June 27 at 12:30 p.m. in the Prisma Health Children’s Hospital lobby in Columbia.

Three Midlands students helped to make that gift to Cailum possible by helping to fund the program.

The students also helped to assemble the mini car, along with orthotists and prosthetists to accommodate Cailum’s mobility challenges.

According to a Prisma Health press release, each car is modified by volunteers and evaluated by a clinical engineering team and then given free of charge to families or recipient organizations.
