Through her condition Mr. Patrello’s daughter called Carena cannot be able to chew her food correctly as healthy eight years olds do. Carena has had to struggle with the help of her father to learn how to chew food properly, and the task has been a difficult one. Also through many hours of constant practice, she has been slowly learning on how to walk on her own. Talking has also been a daunting task and through a speech therapist and her zeal of determination she has had to slowly grasp little by little on how to speak and formulate her words.
All Carena’s problems began after as an infant contributed by the fact that she had been born when she was only 24 weeks. She had then gone on to be diagnosed for periventricular leukomalacia a disease that is common in children born prematurely.
