Phoebe Re-learning How To Walk


Phoebe is struggling with global (all over) neuropathy that is thought to be caused by one of her chemo medicines called Vincristine. Vincristine tends to cause neuropathy in the hands and feet, but Phoebe’s case is atypical because it has also caused extreme weakness in her diaphragm making it difficult for her to breathe. A few other causes have been considered, but for now we are holding the Vincristine from her protocol and praying that her strength returns. The bi-pap machine has given her some improvement, but she has a long way to go. In this video she is trying to learn how to walk again and having fun doing it.
