15-month-old Theeran sustained an injury during birth that caused complete paralysis of his left arm. His mom, Beaulah, sought treatment for her son as soon as possible after birth but was discouraged when his progress plateaued before his first birthday. After connecting with World Pediatric Project St. Louis, Theeran received a nerve transfer surgery at Shriners Hospital St. Louis and occupational therapy to help him regain the function of his left arm. His progress will occur over time and WPP will continue to monitor his progress and follow up with his care for further treatment when the time comes.
