Success Story: Second Chances

Diagnosed with cancer when he was just one, Domani Scott had a bone marrow transplant and more than his share of hospital stays. He had been typically developing, but when he came to MCFI’s Pediatric Skilled Nursing Program two years later, his language skills were delayed, his speech muscles were weak, one side of his body had partial paralysis, and he needed a tube to eat. Yet Domani’s life soon began to improve after PSN therapists helped him strengthen his muscles, improve his speech and learn how to eat. Today, Domani walks independently, speaks in sentences, and enjoys eating!
