Six-year-old Karam Tarazi, who moved from Syria to Baltimore more than a year ago, suffers from a rare progressive genetic condition. Johns Hopkins engineering students worked with his family and physical therapist to design and assemble an alternative to his heavy wheelchair. "The new stroller is just wonderful," said Karam's mother, Dana Ajilikin. "... We are so grateful. Having the stroller like this is going to make such a big difference to Karam and to us."
