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.
