Because… “All Goals Can Be Achieved When You Believe”
Chloe is 6-years-old and receives physical therapy at Keep moving Forward in Garden City.
Read her inspirational story told to us by her mother.
Chloe was born 3 weeks early and suffered a traumatic birth which caused multiple brain hemorrhages and seizures. She was officially diagnosed with spastic quad cerebral palsy. Despite her busy schedule which consisted of doctors’ visits, therapies at school and at home Chloe continues to be a happy six year old child. Chloe’s little brother JD keeps her motivated.
We knew for a fact that the intensive therapy program at Keep Moving Forward would be difficult for Chloe because it is very different from the treatment she was used to getting at school and at home. Her intensive program has worked on challenging multiple muscle groups all at the same time. This program has given us so much hope, that one day Chloe will be able to gain independence through the skills she gains/ learns.
In just 2 weeks, Chloe’s endurance and overall strength has improved. Her upper and lower extremities can now sustain positions that normally would tire her out in seconds.
“The program at KMF is simply wonderful it is unlike any other facilities we’ve been to. The therapists are very knowledgeable, exude professionalism. Their enthusiasm makes the 3 hour sessions fly by quickly that Chloe looks forward to coming to therapy. You’re not just a client when you walk in the door, you become a part of a family.”
