One-year-old girl defies the odds in outpatient therapy
Aubry Maronek, who recently celebrated her first birthday, embodies this spirit of hope and resolve.
After being diagnosed with hemimegalencephaly — a rare neurological condition in which one half of the brain is larger than the other half — Aubry had surgery to address recurring seizures. Surgeons removed half of her brain. Post-surgery, Aubry spent more than a week in inpatient rehabilitation at Mary Free Bed.
Aubry — who is from Ostego — is now seizure-free and working to improve her strength and movement. She’s receiving extensive physical, occupational and speech therapy in Mary Free Bed’s Outpatient Therapy Center.
