Evan’s scoliosis correction surgery revealed a mass near his spinal cord that left him paralyzed from the waist down. Evan's family was told he might never walk again, and they began preparing for Evan to live his life in a wheelchair. With extensive rehab in the Children's Inpatient Rehabilitation Program, however, Evan was determined to reteach every muscle in his legs how to work again.
Technology-assisted therapy at the Children's Center for Advanced Technology and Robotic Rehabilitation helped Evan regain function in his legs and, more important, his independence. With persistence and support from his family and care team, he not only regained function and learned to walk again, he's been cleared to get back on the ice.
