Yu Chen is a happy teenage girl with Cerebral Palsy who likes to laugh and learn. Her parents both work but still make time to surround her with love and care. She loves to have visitors and recently insisted on wearing her favorite pink outfit when she knew our FPP staff were coming.
Her younger sister likes to read to Yu Chen or share interesting things she is learning at school, and any time her sister gets ice cream out of the refrigerator, she makes sure Yu Chen gets some ice cream too!
Yu Chen’s father had also built her a wheelchair out of wood, and during the summer they put a colorful mosquito net around her to protect her skin. Her family reached out to the Family Partners Program for support. In addition to receiving regular Speech and Language Therapy from our German specialist Miss Dorothee, our Physiotherapists have also taken measurements to assist in finding a new wheelchair.
At present, Yu Chen is growing in confidence and puts forth good effort into her exercises. We look forward to continuing with her and her family on this journey.
