    Four-Year-Old Without Cerebellum Learning to Say ABCs, Count



    ...Chase was born without his Cerebellum, a brain structure that plays a major role in motor control, balance, coordination, language and learning. He is also missing his Pons, a structure that regulates basic functions like sleeping and breathing.

    I can't begin to imagine how exciting this must be for Chase's parents to watch his progress. I don't even know Chase and I have tears of joy running down my face.

    Wow. I am crying after watching those videos. Go Chase!

    Here's a diagram showing the location of the cerebellum and pons.

    You can hold back from the suffering of the world. You have free permission to do so and it is in accordance with your nature.
    But perhaps this very holding back is the one suffering you could have avoided.

    Cuddos to one dedicaded teacher and two great parents as well. His dad filled my heart when he spoke of Chase saying,"I love you."
    I bet he never thought he'd hear that. God works miracles.
