Domani Scott didn’t have an easy start to Llife. Diagnosed with cancer when he was just 1, he’s had a bone marrow transplant and more than his share of hospital stays.

He had been typically developing until then, but when he came to MCFI two years later, his language skills were delayed, his speech muscles were weak,     
and one side of his body had partial paralysis.

Domani also had lost the ability to eat and needed a Naso-gastric tube – a tube.inserted through the nostril that extends to the stomach for feeding.

But Domani’s life would soon begin to improve. Staff immediately began physical therapy to strengthen his leg and trunk muscles, and occupational therapists taught him how to use his weakened hands and arms.

Fast forward to today. Domani, now 5, walks independently and speaks in sentences. He enjoys eating small amounts of food with his friends at MCFI’s School for Early Development & Achievement, where he fully participates.
