Inspiring Templeton girl recovers from brain surgery

The Templeton girl living with a rare neurological movement disorder called Dystonia is recovering from surgery.

Last week, doctors in the Bay Area turned on a brain pacemaker that they had implanted, giving Cheyenne Willis a 70 percent chance at walking again.

On a website the family has set up for Cheyenne, her mother said the "surgery went well" and while they have yet to see any "noticeable changes," doctors did tell them it may take days to see any difference and even months of physical therapy to determine whether she will re-gain the use of her legs.
