Welcome to our CaringBridge website. We are using it to keep family and friends updated in one place. We appreciate your support, prayers and words of hope and encouragement. Thank you for visiting! As many of you are aware Banks has cerebral palsy. Over time we began to realize that even though cerebral palsy is not a progressive disorder, the wear and tear on Banks' body due the tightness of his leg muscles began and will continue to take its toll and greatly affect his quality of life. This awareness led us to make the decision to see if Banks would be a candidate for selective dorsal rhistomy(SDR). SDR is a surgical procedure on the spine that helps reduce the muscle tightness/spasticity in the legs. We were thrilled that Dr. Park,the pioneer of this procedure, determined that Banks was a good candidate for SDR. We feel blessed that Banks is able to have this procedure, and we so appreciate all the support and encouragement that we have received.
