Video: Learning to walk again

8

September

Richard LaFleur was born with a rare disability called "crouch gait.'' For 15 years, he could not extend his legs to walk and moved about low to the ground, similar to someone doing a Russian dance. Thanks to a Christian foundation in Michigan and the charity of strangers in Pasco County, he found help at All Children's Hospital and can now walk upright back in Guyana. This video shows how he looked before the treatments, and how he was walking three months later. Watch the video below.
