You help Georgia Kate get therapy focused on possibilities, not limits

Laura McKenna is hopeful for a bright future for her daughter, Georgia Kate, thanks to special therapies you help provide.

When Laura McKenna learned her daughter, Georgia Kate, born at just 28 weeks, had cerebral palsy she was determined to forge the best life she could for her child.

Because of your support of Richmond Hope Physical Therapy, the McKenna family is looking at possibilities, not limitations, for Georgia Kate. Now 19 months old, Georgia Kate has been receiving therapy since she was about a year old.


“One of the best things about the clinic is that they are so proactive. Everyone looks for solutions instead of pointing out more problems. Other places talk a lot about limits, but at Richmond Hope there isn’t anything we can’t do, we just need to figure out how to do it.”


Laura wants you to know how important your contributions are to Georgia Kate and the rest of the McKenna family.

“The name Richmond Hope is just so fitting,” she continued. “It is so scary when your child has a diagnosis like this—no one ever expects it. You just want to do whatever you can to help your kid. Richmond Hope gave us just that, ‘hope.’ They make us feel like there is something to be done about it, instead of making us feel helpless.”

"Thank you. You are radically changing my child's life. There was a time when we didn’t think Georgia Kate would be able to do anything for herself, but Richmond Hope is helping me provide a higher quality of life for her. That is a huge gift to give someone."
