Shriners Hospital for Children

DESCRIPTION

Shriner's Hospital for Children is a wonderful organization and hospital for children with Special Needs. Children who visit this hospital have a wide array of challenges, such as Cerebral Palsy, Cleft Lip and Pallet, Spina Bifida, and a lot of other physical disabilities and challenges. A lot of children go into Shriner's not being able to walk, and come out better.

They provide a wide array of programs and things for the children in the hospital to do such as Recreational therapy, which is a big gym/playroom type thing where the children can go and play and take their minds off their physical pain from surgery. They also have many outings and fun field trips that they take children on (which parents permission of course), as well as many visitors such as the Shriners Circus and different guests.

I have Cerebral Palsy, and until the age of 6, I was in a wheelchair, and when I did walk, it was on my toes. Thanks to a surgery I had at age 5 on my hamstrings, I can now walk with my feet flat on the ground. I also had series casting at the age of 11, and a 2nd surgery at the age of 14 to straighten my legs better. With the help of Shriner's Hospital, I no longer have to wear braces anymore, or use a walker or wheelchair, They have changed my life and so many others lives. This is my way of saying thank you to them.
