Gage came into the world in 2014 and has been making a big impact ever since. He was born with congenital cytomegalovirus, or CMV. Although the effects of this illness weren’t clear from day one, Gage’s family set out on a journey that would prove life altering. As they navigate Gage’s unique reality, which includes cerebral palsy and severe epilepsy, they’ve grieved and grown and so much more, but most of all, they loved. The Wingo family has also been on the receiving end of loads of love and kindness, and witnessed how Gage, in his very own way, has an affect on others.
Gage has an adventurous spirit and heart-warming smile. He uses a wheelchair to get around, and has lots of places to be, whether it’s school, therapy appointments or trips to the swimming pool. In early 2020, generous family members helped Gage get a minivan to suit his needs. The impact of that gift has been felt each day since, and the ripple effect spreads even further, inspiring Gage’s family to help others in the same way!
