Activities like walking and riding a bike may seem simple for most teenage boys, but for Jerry, who has cerebral palsy, they were tiring, painful, and challenging. Last year, Jerry moved into a ChildServe group home and began intensive physical therapy to increase his strength. After two months of therapy and ongoing Botox injections, Jerry is now in less pain, and has the strength to ride a specialized bike and stand taller. He still uses a walker when he walks, but thanks to help from ChildServe, Jerry is reaching milestones his mother never thought possible!
