Walk for LOVE patient ambassador, Brantley

Brantley, 9, lives in Estacada, OR, and will always be excited to show you his latest Taekwondo move!

Brantley was born with Spina Bifida and at one day old had a shunt placed into his brain and a defect on his back repaired. At 6 months old, after two more shunt surgeries and physical therapy, Brantley was doing things like rolling over and sitting up -things that his mother was told normally would not happen until he was at least two or three.

At two years old, an energetic Brantley was referred to Shriners Children’s Portland to be fitted for a Reciprocating Gait Orthosis (RGO), which is a full body brace that allows a person to stand and walk, usually with a lot of effort. Since his first therapy appointment using his RGO, Brantley has not stopped moving and is often seen chatting and high-fiving many of the staff at Shriners Children’s Portland, including the schedulers, clinic staff and his physical therapist, Joel.

When he is not at Shriners Children’s Portland or school, Brantley likes to practice taekwondo, play video games, and make new friends.
