Bindi’s story - from brain surgery to a full sprint; there’s no stopping her now!

Bindi’s story - from brain surgery to a full sprint; there’s no stopping her now!

Bindi’s story, as told by her mom, Melissa.

It started when Bindi was 3 - over the course of a few weeks, a couple of things weren't adding up. Bindi was left-handed. One day, however, I noticed she was coloring with her right hand. Trying to be the helpful mommy, I put the crayon back into her left hand, only for Bindi herself to put it back into her right hand. Hmmm. Later, while we were on vacation, she kept saying she was tired of walking. Not thinking much of that at first, I thought it was just a normal kid thing. But, it wasn't only that. When we went swimming, she only used her right arm. She also began dragging her left foot. Something was wrong with my little girl, and I needed to get her help. Check out Bindi's story.
