Alex had her whole life ahead of her. Since she was a little girl, she was a dancer with promise. Eventually she became a dance teacher, then unexpectedly, her dreams were put on hold.
A neurological disorder caused her muscles to shake, contract, and spasm uncontrollably. Her toes and fingers curled and became impossible to unfurl. Her body twisted and turned. Her posture was irregular.
It became increasingly difficult for Alex to function. She was diagnosed with a dystonia. Alex appeared onThe Doctorsto see if there was any way they could help her.
The process would take years, but there was hope. Alex was a candidate for a risky brain surgery. There was no guarantee it would work, and she would have to be completely awake during the brain operation to prevent unwanted damage.
Alex decided to take the risk, and boy, did it pay off. Literally, in the middle of her surgery, Alex already saw improvements. While doctors were still operating, she could suddenly control the muscles in her hands by opening and closing her palm something that had become impossible.
The Doctorscaught up with Alex three years after the life-saving intervention. You would never know that Alex had previously ever had such a condition. Her posture was back, she no longer shook, she was no longer jittery. She was completely transformed.
“I came from a point to where there was no hope to a point where my hopes and dreams are coming true,” Alex says. “Now I can take on the world. I feel so good.”
