Botox Injected In Four-Year-Old To Make Her Walk For The First Time

While Botox is often used to make the old look young again, this time it was injected into Kayla Eales' leg muscles to reduce the likelihood of contracting muscle fibres, letting her move a bit more normally than before. Likewise, it is only a temporary solution, but it is something that has relieved not only her legs but also the anxiety of the family for her future. Every nine months, Kayla would be injected with it if her body doesn't react to it negatively.

Diagnosed with cerebral palsy when she was only one-year-old, Kayla Eales has been unable to walk on her feet. However, her parents Anthony and Gemma were not going to give up on her.

Kayla's siblings are always there to assist her. Shaun, 11 (left), and Jayden, 8 (right), love her very much. Interestingly, Jayden also has cerebral palsy, although he can still walk.

First Time To Climb The Stairs.

Kayla was born prematurely and was diagnosed with bronchitis, and her parents believe that the failure of the doctors to immediately get oxygen for her caused her cerebral palsy. For three minutes, her brain didn't get any oxygen. But now, with the Botox injection, Kayla can walk and even climb the stairs, slowly but surely.

In the future, her parents are hopeful that she would get to have an operation called dorsal rhizotomy which would cut into her spine, allowing her to walk properly on her heels. To help with the costs, Gemma has a GoFundMe page to appeal to people who would like to give money.
