Sadly, many children go through injuries and conditions that would bring grown men to their knees. Often times, their good spirits and determination make all the difference in treatment. That was the case for Jimmy! After surgery to remove a brain tumor left Jimmy feeling weak and unsteady, but he wasn't going to let it sideline him. He set his mind to getting back to being the active, happy-go-lucky kid he wanted to be and nothing was going to stop Jimmy!
Carl was a young man with developmental delays, a previous head injury and a pretty toxic home environment.

Today, he is doing good in school and he is finally able to enjoy a day in the park!
