Teenage girl with cerebral palsy realises dream

Every teenage girl has a dream and for Lia Sintras it was to get out of her wheelchair and walk into her Year 10 formal.

Lia Sintras was born with cerebral palsy and because of her condition she has been in a wheelchair ever since she could remember.
Cerebral palsy is a permanent life-long condition which has meant over the course of Lia's short life she has endured multiple surgeries and regular therapy sessions in a bid to stretch and straighten her limbs into manageable obedience.
