Special bikes bring big smiles

BATON ROUGE, La. (NBC NEWS) -

Izabella, a five-year-old girl, who suffers from spina bifida, says she feels like a star on a bicycle.

Now, she is shining bright all over her neighborhood thanks to Andrew McLindon.

He created a foundation that provides adaptive bikes for children with disabilities, like Izabella.

"The rush that you get when you see a kid get a bike, it's amazing," said McLindon. "They just beam, they can't believe it."

There is such high demand from parents across the country that McLindon says the foundation had to set up a waiting list.
