Hi Im Adam! I am 4 and half years old and I want to tell you about myself and the Shea Center. I have a rare genetic disorder that was caused by a mutation in my CBL gene. Unfortunately, this mutation has caused me to
have hypotonia (low muscle strength), developmental delays, and several other medical issues I have been working to overcome since I was a baby. When I was 7 months old I was diagnosed with early onset scoliosis. I've been wearing a back brace since I was 10 months old, which makes everyday tasks a bit harder for me. When I was about 2 years old, before discovering my gene mutation, doctors informed my parents it was possible that I would not walk on my own or develop speech as they were not sure what was causing all my delays. My parents were not going to give up on me! With the help of many physical therapy sessions and a reverse walker I began walking when I was 2 and a half. I am still non-verbal, but I use some sign language and pictures to communicate. At the end of 2016, I was also diagnosed with Autism. At this point I seemed to make little progress with conventional therapies and
was struggling to find a therapy I can enjoy. That is when my mom began researching other methods of treatment and found the Shea Center. After just a few sessions we knew we found something I am responding well to and love. In just the past weeks my parents have been able to see improvement in my posture and head control, I am even learning to say Go! when I want the horses at the Shea Center to get going. The Shea Center staff are very helpful and committed to my improvement and growth. Sharing how much the Shea Center has helped me, I would like to ask you for a donation to the Shea Center. Your contribution will help other children
and families like mine with therapies needed in order to make progress toward a brighter future and a higher quality of life. Thank you!
