Patient celebrates birthday and amazing rehabilitation strides in Houston

Congratulations to Miranda for being selected as Patient of the Month for September 2016. Miranda is a rehabilitation inpatient who recently celebrated her 11th birthday at the Houston Shiners hospital.

Miranda had an accident two years ago that left her paralyzed from the chest down and with a brachial plexus injury. She suffered a recent health setback for which she was being treated at another local hospital before being transferred to the Houston Shriners Hospital to receive inpatient rehabilitation. She has made much progress since her arrival and is gaining leg strength daily. She is highly motivated to reach her therapeutic goals and enthusiastically tackles her daily rehab sessions.

She enjoys basketball and likes to paint in her free time. She also loves listening to her favorite singer, Taylor Swift. Miranda continues to improve in therapy every day and always leaves a smile on the faces of those she interacts with.
