The boy without a cerebellum

A dear friend of Matt's Mom sent us this story, and it is so amazing that we have to share it with you all.

As I have written in earlier posts, the reason for Lila's lack of balance, low muscle tone, coordination, and speech is because her cerebellum is smaller than normal.  After watching this video of Chase Britton, we are even more positive about her future!  These kids are truly amazing :-)


On another note, I have completed another handful of purses, so get ready to shop!


  1. Maria, what a wonderful / inspiring story. I see so much of that dedication in you and matt as those parents have for Chase. Keep pushing forward!!

  2. Maria,

    What an amazing video.

    My name is Tami and I have a 5 1/2 yr old little boy named Ramsey, who reminds me of both your daughter and the little boy in the video.

    I was wondering if you would email me, so that I could ask some questions on what you have done to get to where you are. I've hit the "Big Wall", as we have been everywhere and no one can help us. My little boy doesn't walk or talk and I hurt for him, as I don't know what to do next. I live here in Reno and have been through so many of the same steps you have. Anyway, if you have a moment and could email me, I would appreciate it. I know you are very busy, as I am, but I feel so alone and thought maybe if I knew someone else going through this, it could give me a little more strength. My email address is tamigardner70@yahoo.com.

    Thank you so much for sharing your story. Lila and you and Matt will be in my pray's always now.
