Every so often, Hadley Lucca will spend hours in front of her bedroom mirror, struggling to put on earrings or pull her long, golden locks back into ponytails.
For Hadley, 11, activities that other girls her age take for granted can sometimes seem insurmountable. As an infant, she survived a stroke that resulted in hemiplegia, a type of cerebral palsy in which one side of the body is significantly weaker than the other.
“Hadley is a real trouper,” said her mother, Sarah Lucca, a schoolteacher from Elko New Market. “She wants to be independent just like the other kids, and that means not having to count on others to do things like put up her hair.”
