Most Memorable Patient:

  • Colin had Spinal Muscular Atrophy and was extremely weak. I saw him thru the Early Steps Program for 2 years. He learned to talk, eat and use his hands well although he could barely hold his head up. He had an adorable personality. Unfortunately he passed away shortly after his third birthday when his lungs could not recover from pneumonia.
