Cassidy had an in utero stroke. After not receiving a diagnosis until she was almost 2, she has been in several types of therapy (physical, occupational, water, hippo). She has never once complained about anything that's a hindrance to her. She has had botox injections and received electrical stimulation treatments. She is always happy to do what her therapists ask of her and I couldn't be a more proud mother!
