Senior vows to walk unassisted across stage to receive high school diploma

May 17, 2018

High school senior Nyeilah Suggs holds the hand of  Mandi Weiner, PT, with Madonna TherapyPlus, as she practices walking. Last fall Nyeilah worked hard  in outpatient therapy to achieve her goal of walking unassisted across stage to receive her high school diploma.

A 17-year-old who survived a severe asthma attack a few years back vows to walk unassisted across the stage to receive her high school diploma.
Last fall Nyeilah Suggs worked hard at Madonna's TherapyPlus outpatient therapy to achieve her goal in May 2018.
Her message to others is simple, but speaks volumes: believe in yourself. Because as Nyeilah found out first-hand, when you do, you may just surprise yourself.
