Meet María, Our Star of the Month!

María arrived at the Children’s Rehabilitation Institute TeletonUSA (CRIT) in 2021. When she started therapies, she was unable to sit or stand on her own and would sit in her wheelchair for most hours of the day. After years of hard work and dedication, María can now sit independently and stand for extended periods with less help. She can even use an assistive device and participate in Lokomat training to strengthen her muscles and develop appropriate posture.

While María’s progress is remarkable, her path to rehabilitation is far from over. Through the kindness and generosity of people like you, María and many children find the strength to conquer obstacles that once seemed impossible.
