Brothers with rare condition painting postcards to fund custom vehicle

Two brothers in Cambridge with a rare genetic disorder are painting postcards to help offset the costs of a vehicle that will accommodate their wheelchairs.

Liam, 9, and Kaleb, 12, both have Duchenne muscular dystrophy, a life-limiting, muscle-degenerative condition. Amy Cavalier, their mother, says it’s difficult for the boys to find suitable activities but a few years ago they discovered painting together.

The brothers first started creating works of art as Christmas gifts and then later they designed a painting for an auction. It was then they decided to create an entire collection of canvas paintings in order to help them raise funds for a new van. In order to keep costs down, their parents had them converted into postcards instead.
