Cade was just shy of his 5th birthday when he was diagnosed with a pilocytic astrocytoma brain tumor. During a major craniotomy to debulk as much of the tumor as possible to relieve the pressure on his optic nerves, Cade suffered a massive stroke damaging the left side of his brain. The stroke caused hemiparesis on the right side of his body, and Cade also lost all of his speech. Cade's age was on his side as the neuroplasticity that takes place in a child's brain offered hope for recovery. The healthy neurons would compensate for the damaged parts of Cade's brain. This does not happen all by itself. For the past six years, Cade has undergone hours and hours of physical, occupational, and speech therapy. This is what brought him to the Shea Center. The riding that Cade does here is the highlight of his very busy week. As he rides Lucas every Saturday morning, Cade is strengthening his core; correcting his midline; increasing his confidence; and having so much fun doing it. Cade is now eleven years old and he has come very far in the past six years since the stroke. We continue to see improvements in his walking (and running) and his speech also gets better and better. We know we have a long road ahead of us, but we see God's hand on our little super hero, and we believe the best is yet to come!
