NOAH MAY ONE DAY BE THE WORLD’S MOST AMAZING HIP-HOP DANCER
BUT TODAY, THE FACT THAT HE DANCES AT ALL IS AMAZING.

Noah’s parents, Chris and Amy, kept a vigil by Noah’s side, desperately praying and hoping for more time with their youngest child. They spent several weeks journeying from absolute fear to hope, to marking milestones, to joy.
After 27 days at MetroHealth, Noah was accepted into a pediatric rehabilitation program, where his therapies continue, now as an outpatient. Noah is back in school and enjoying the fourth grade. His activities include piano, flag football, choir and an accelerated math program. According to Dr. Elie Rizkala, a MetroHealth pediatric neurologist, “Noah experienced a remarkable recovery and is overall back to his baseline.” Noah still faces some hurdles, though miraculously he is a happy, healthy 10-year-old who eagerly entertains his family and anyone else who wants to experience his exuberant hip-hop dancing.
