Harlan is the perfect example of how far a positive attitude can help you go
At birth, Harlan was born with swelling in her brain that resulted in Cerebral Palsy. She’s now 6, and since then has undergone multiple procedures and surgeries. Some of her treatments included several injections of botox and a rhizotomy, a surgical procedure to sever nerve roots in the spinal cord to relieve chronic back pain.
According to Harlan’s care coordinator at the hospital, everything that she goes through does not slow her down. She said, “Harlan is always smiling and loves to laugh. And the gift from Kids Wish Network made her smile grow even larger! Harlan is a leader and always wants to help others. She never says that she can’t do something. Harlan has so much determination and shows everyone how a positive attitude can help you succeed. She is a hero!”
It is with great pride that we honor Harlan’s bravery by recognizing her as Kids Wish Network’s along with Children’s Rehabilitation Services – Mobile’s Hero of the Month. Congratulations, Harlan!
