The wonderful moment when a 4-year-old girl with cerebral palsy makes her first steps

Maya, a 4-year-old girl, has cerebral palsy. In May, she and her family traveled to the St. Louis Children’s Hospital in Missouri, USA, where she underwent a surgical procedure known as Selective Dorsal Rhizotomy (SDR) in an effort to cope with the cerebral palsy she has.

According to American media, doctors told the girl’s family that it could take her even a year before the little Maya can walk alone. But just seven weeks after the surgery, the 4-year-old proved that nothing was impossible and did its first steps.

Maya was born one month prematurely and weighed only half a kilo! Shortly before closing the two years of life, she was diagnosed with cerebral palsy and until the time you see above, it always needed ancillary sticks and strollers to walk.
