Her competitive spirit is amazing. Eight year old Molly Breidinger of Davenport has tremendous work ethic. When she was a year old, Molly was diagnosed with cerebral palsy, primarily impacting her legs and walking pattern.

So, Molly goes to the Children's Therapy Center in Moline once a week for physical therapy. For the last three years, she has been working with therapist Sarah Polich. The two do a number of exercises to improve balance, hip extension, and posture.

Molly plants her feet and tosses a beanbag, does a series of kicks, works on the treadmill, and is involved in other exercises. Mary Breidinger says her daughter realizes that anything is possible with hard work. Molly's walking, running, and playground skills have improved immensely because of the help she has received at the Children's Therapy Center.

The center provides therapy to more than four hundred children with developmental disabilities and delays. In ten years, the Children's Therapy Center has increased services by about one hundred thirty eight percent. Local people helping local children. A Quad City Success Story.
