#GoodNews: Quadriplegic Six-Year-Old Completes Triathlon

 

Daisy Mason, a six-year-old from Norfolk, England, has quadriplegic cerebral palsy, but that didn’t keep her from completing her first triathlon recently. She did a 500-foot swim, a half mile trike ride, and a 2-mile wheelchair section, that her dad gave her some help with.

When Daisy was a baby, doctors prepared her parents for the idea that she might be in a wheelchair for life, have to use a feeding tube and might not ever speak. Her parents have worked hard with her to help her develop and overcome her difficulties.

“She’s done an amazing job and we couldn’t be any more proud of her,” says Daisy’s mom, Lucy Mason. “This shows what motivation and a loving home can really do.”
