AKRON, OH (WFXR) – A 13-year-old girl is having to learn how to walk again.
Isabel Kirby suffers from a rare neurological disease that robbed her of the ability to use her legs.
The disease is called Acute Flaccid Myelitis.
It’s been a year since young Isabel has had the ability to walk, but she is now beating the odds – even though many other children with the disease never regain use of their legs once inflicted with the disease.
Doctors at Akron Children’s Hospital say Isabel is starting to walk with assistance and they are hoping for the best.
