Background on Iralyn:
Iralyn was diagnosed with cerebral palsy at the age of one. When she was 3, she took her very first step independently without a walker. Since attending the VIP NeuroRehabilitation Center in California for 3 weeks in 2013, 4 weeks in 2015 and 2016 and the 3 weeks in 2017 & 2018, she has gotten stronger and stronger and can walk a good distance independently, walk up 5 steps, and even jump for the first time about an inch off the ground! She has made amazing progress in her physical abilities and endurance and for the first time is able to run a little! These are significant milestones that we never thought possible until attending VIP Neurorehabilitation. She doesn't let anything get in her way and is determined to not let cerebral palsy keep her down. The rehabilitation center provides hours of intense therapy every day with the use of special machines like the Lokomat and Giger that track her every move with robotic legs, sensors, and treadmills. She also focuses daily on her balance, coordination, stretching, strength, and endurance. These intense hours on a daily basis help her tremendously achieve all that she can, and in doing so inspire others who have CP. or any other condition that prohibits them in any way.
