Walking with Water Therapy

Walking with Water Therapy

A 14-year-old girl is slowly learning to walk again after contracting a devastating disease. Her progress is good, thanks to aquatic therapy.
(WBAL)  One of Delaney Bosworth's favorite parts of the week is her aqua-therapy session at Kennedy Krieger. Delaney is teaching her body to walk again after she suddenly collapsed and became paralyzed three years ago.

"I didn't know what was happening. I was very scared. No one knew what was happening, and that was the scary part," Delaney told 11 News reporter Kim Dacey.

Delaney was eventually diagnosed with a rare condition called transverse myelitis, or TM. Doctors believe her condition stemmed from a virus that attacked her spinal cord.
