WiFiRanger is helping one family spread awareness of a rare disorder by helping them stay connected to the web and their online follower base while traveling across the country.

“Our youngest son, Matthew, was born with a rare genetic disorder called Angelman Syndrome that affects his central nervous system. To help raise awareness about the disorder we are loading up the family for a cross country trip summer 2019,” said Mike Cook, father of Matthew who was diagnosed at birth with Angelman Syndrome. “Staying connected to the web during our trip is vital so we can update our followers on all our activity and awareness events we’re planning throughout the U.S. trip. When we reached out to WiFiRanger to help keep our travel trailer connected they didn’t hesitate to donate one of their indoor/outdoor router systems and Wi-Fi signal boosters. Their donation was yet another confirmation that our trip is meant to happen for Matthew and other kids battling Angelman Syndrome.”

“It’s not often that a story like young Matthew’s will come across my desk. We consider it a privilege to lend a hand and help this family stay connected while on the road,” said Jim Owsley, VP of marketing and communications at WiFiRanger. “Completing a cross country trip is not for the faint of heart – and it’s especially inspiring when a family like the Cooks can rally the kids to hit the open road for such a worthy cause. We’re cheering them on here at WiFiRanger and look forward to hearing of their adventures and accomplishments to help raise awareness about Angelman Syndrome.”
