We first brought you the story of a Templeton girl facing brain surgery at the chance of walking again.
Today we are happy to bring you an update on Cheyenne Willis. Her scheduled surgery for late March has been moved up to next week.
Cheyenne has a neurological movement disorder called Dystonia. Over the course of three years, it caused the 11-year-old to lose the use of her legs.
Doctors said the surgery, in which a brain pacemaker will be implanted, will give her a 70 percent chance at walking again.
Next week's surgery is one of two she'll have to undergo. Cheyenne said she looks forward to some day cheer leading, again.
