This year’s Telethon Ambassador is London. For Charisse Odom, having a child care center with nursing and therapy services under one roof is invaluable to her and her daughter, London. Charisse needed specialized child care for London, who was born with microcephaly, a condition where her head is very small, and the brain is not fully developed, and later diagnosed with Spastic Quadriplegia Cerebral Palsy, so she could work full-time.
London has benefited greatly from the quality care she receives and is able to get Speech and Occupational Therapy, including feeding therapy, as well as Physical Therapy while she attends the Preschool Program. She has reached many milestones as a result including improved head control, sitting up, rolling over, and holding things with her hands. URS offers London a safe, nurturing place to go while Charisse works and the peace of mind that provides there is invaluable to her. She doesn’t know what the future holds for London, but one thing is certain, URS will be there to meet her needs now and throughout her lifetime.
