ASP Donates Pool Renovation to Aid in Youth's Aqua-Therapy

ASP - America's Swimming Pool Company was recently featured on 41 NBC with Jessie Brooks in a segment titled, “Middle GA Family Hopeful After Receiving Pool Donation.” The story was on location at the Barfield’s home where America’s Swimming Pool Company is renovating the existing pool for 4-year old Madison Barfield, who has lost the use of her arms, legs and also her voice due to a nervous system condition called Rett Syndrome. With aqua-therapy, one of the best treatments for Rett Syndrome, Jessie may be able to gain some of the muscle strength that she has lost back.

Middle GA Family Hopeful After Receiving Pool Donation

Today a Middle Georgia family gets a helping hand from a local pool company. 4-year-old Madison Barfield can't speak, walk, or use her arms.
She has a rare condition called 'Rett Syndrome' that effects the nervous system.

“She's my world. She's my best friend. It's hard to say that somebody is your best friend that can't talk, but aw man, the personality in her. There's so much more there than meets the eye," said Rayven Barfield, Madison’s mother.

At first glance 4-year-old Madison Barfield looks the part of a typical little girl, with her bubbly smile and contagious laugh, but little Madison can't talk, use her arms or walk because of a nervous system condition called Rett Syndrome. Without the ability to speak to their daughter, Madison's parents found other ways to understand her needs.

"She uses her eyes mainly as far as letting us know what she needs and what she wants. You know she'll look at something and if there's a drink on the table, she'll look at the drink and she'll start crying. Let you know that she's thirsty," said Joseph Barfield, Madison’s father.
