It has been about a year since she received the Chive Charities grant and in the last year, Penelope has continued to make improvements and has gotten stronger and more confident.
Last week in her therapy session, she did 25 minutes on the treadmill (with all the pulleys and straps that they use as part of her therapy). Also, over the last couple of weeks, the family has noticed Penelope is bending her knees a lot more while walking assisted, which is showing her confidence and strength. At school, her teachers and therapists are making her walk using a gait belt instead of utilizing her stroller.
We are so proud of you, Penelope! We can’t wait to see what you achieve next.
