Resilience And Determination: Ryleigh's Story

Provided by Kennedy Krieger Institute

Ryleigh is a determined five-year-old who has worked hard over the past year to reverse the effects of acute flaccid myelitis, including paralysis. She has about twelve hours of therapy a week, which is a lot for a little girl. In honor of Physical Therapy Month, Ryleigh’s physical therapist, Lia Brunn shares a story about this inspiring little girl.

Produced by Kennedy Krieger Institute in partnership with WYPR.
