Stories From Our Clients

James' Story

James began receiving child care at Easterseals when he was about 4 months old. His parents had noticed that his leg turned in slightly since birth; shortly before starting at Easterseals, it was discovered that James had a condition known as bilateral congenital pseudoarthrosis of the tibia.

Mikey's Story

For most families, the birth of a child is a joyous occasion. For the Inzeo family, Mikey’s birth was a day of emotional struggle, and fear of the unknown. Mike (Mikey's father) was trying to do it all for his family, and was quickly burning out. He needed help, and Easterseals was there to help him.
