At just 10 months old, Katelyn was diagnosed with cerebral palsy, a congenital disorder of movement, muscle tone, or posture that affects body movement and muscle coordination. She underwent two surgeries to help improve her eyes; then just two years later underwent leg surgery. Today, Katelyn uses a wheelchair to get around and has physical therapy two times a week.
Despite her condition, Katelyn tries to make the best of her situation. Described as a sweet and curious girl, Katelyn loves using her imagination to color and make things out of play dough. She enjoys watching all sorts of Disney movies such as Finding Dory, Cinderella, and anything Mickey Mouse. Most of all, Katelyn loves to collect and accessorize her very extensive doll collection.
