Nathan is a happy, funny, smart, loving 7 year old boy. Due to complications from prematurity, Nathan has cerebral palsy and other health problems. ...He has chewing and swallowing difficulties, a feeding tube, asthma, severe acid reflux, dystonia, and muscle spasms which cause him much discomfort. He has already undergone five surgeries and countless hospital and doctor visits. He has poor head control, he cannot sit independently, and he does not walk or talk.
Despite these difficulties, Nathan has an amazing personality. He wakes each morning happy and ready to tackle another day. He has a joyous smile and an infectious laugh. He adores his little sister and being silly with his cousins. Nathan LOVES music. He would spend every waking moment playing RockBand video games if he could! He enjoys horseback riding at a therapeutic riding left, and while trotting on his favorite horse, Merlin, he gets some relief as his muscles begin to relax. Nathan is quick to learn new things, and he works hard at school and during therapies. He is beginning to read and spell. Nathan has a zest for life, a drive to succeed, and an amazing ability to make this world a better place by touching the hearts of the people he meets.
