Her fifth birthday is just two months away, and her family thinks that by then, mighty miss Maya will be hard to keep up with. "She's doing it. You've done it for like a minute", the girl's brother can be heard saying in the video.

Her family calls her their "Mighty Girl" and we can absolutely see why. "But to just to have those first steps and knowing that it's possible is so great for her and our family". After Maya's procedure, the doctor informed Maya's parents that she would someday be able to walk but not without daily physical therapy.

"Now that her spasticity is gone (or almost gone) she is able to do so many things that we never thought possible and is clearly more comfortable and happy", says Maya's parents.

Maya previously walked with support.

"We expected where Maya was before surgery that it would take her at least six months to a year to get to independent steps and here we are seven weeks after", Ann Tisdale told ABC. Physical therapy can help loosen muscles but, depending on the severity, some children may never walk and others may need a walker, braces or other forms of mobility assistance. "Because of her CP, Maya is now unable to stand on her own for more than a few seconds, or walk without the use of walker". She still has the damage in her brain and she still has some tightness in her legs.
