An insurance company is denying a child who is paralyzed from the waist down a wheelchair because they claim the child is too young and not old enough to be independent.

Aubrey Allred claims that insurance company, Anthem Blue Cross, is refusing her son a wheelchair. Allred believes that her son is ready for an upgrade after the 2 year old has been using a Zipzac to get around.

The insurance companies decision to refuse the young child a proper wheelchair, has left Allred “heart broken” and told FoxNews.com, “I was heartbroken. I probably cried for two days. They are saying my son is not old enough to be independent. I feel just because my son has a disability doesn’t mean he doesn’t have the right to be independent.”

Allred’s son, Crue, was named after popular rock group Motley Crue, and was born with a condition called spina bifida; a condition that causes paralysis of the waist down.

Crue’s mother however wants Crue to experience everything he can, and does not want her son to ever feel limited because of his condition. Aubrey has even brought her son rock climbing where she recalls seeing her son climb by stating, “He was a little afraid at first, but when he saw everyone else, he was bound and determined to climb. It was just awesome to see him do it and to see all the people who were there cheering him on.”

Aubrey is determined to get her son his wheelchair because she feels that it is his right to be able to be independent. She has re registered her application for the chair, and has even gone onto to Facebook to try and gain support for her young child where shoe writes, “Yes, Crue is only 2 but his mobility shouldn’t be determined by a doctor that works for the insurance company who has never met him. Crue is such an amazing and determined little boy, and is capable of a lot more than they think.”
