Local boy becomes inspiration after his miraculous steps to recovery

After noticing an abnormality in his legs, Gabe Palazollo was diagnosed with cerebral palsy.

In January, it was determined that Gabe was a candidate at DMC Children’s Hospital of Michigan for a selective dorsal rhizotomy. During this procedure the spine is opened and the affected nerves are identified and amputated away.

Although it was believed that it would take a minimum of 6 months for Gabe to show improvement, he surprised everyone and began walking after 10 days!
