Teen with cerebral palsy takes his longest walk

Tuesday, July 1, 2014 — Ronette Scarbrough never thought her son, David Scarbrough, would walk a fair distance without assistance.

After being diagnosed with cerebral palsy at 3 years old, David Scarbrough has been in and out of hospitals and has undergone drastic surgeries that left him bed-ridden and with casts covering both his legs.

“The doctors though he might never walk without assistance,” said Ronette Scarbrough.

However, David Scarbrough’s determination to see a favorite uncle urged him to walk nearly a quarter of a mile without his walker or wheelchair.

I too think David is a remarkable young man. I've known him for the last several years and anyone can see his determination and growth. What a great guy! Keep it up David.

What a wonderful story of insperation. I recall a boy who went to my school in South Lake Tahoe by the name Glen Lucky. He was born with M.S. When Glen was a young man, He rode his bike to Las Vegas to be on Jerry Lewis yearly show.. David! Your act of courage was living proof of how much love you have toward your uncle . Great job. :lol:
