This is every parent’s nightmare!
I have two very active children who love to jump on our backyard trampoline and do flips and cartwheels at any given moment. I don’t mind them having a little fun with their gymnastics because they are kids after all, but I do worry a little bit each time I see them flip in the air or try a new twist when they dive in a pool.
As a mother, the last thing I want is to see my children get hurt – or worse, suffer an injury that might change their lives forever.
And that’s exactly what happened to 5-year-old Eden Hoelscher when she became paralyzed by doing something she’s done so many times before.
One little girl became paralyzed from the waist down after doing a simple gymnastics move while playing around at home.
