Templeton girl will have brain surgery and a chance at walking again

We have an update on a courageous little girl in Templeton facing Deep Brain Stimulation surgery and the chance of walking again.

Three years ago, Cheyenne Willis was diagnosed with Dystonia, a neurological movement disorder.

It caused the then 8-year-old cheerleader to lose the use of her legs and is now attacking her voice box.

Cheyenne met with a doctor in San Francisco last week.

Her father told KSBY News she will have surgery on March 23 and then a follow up surgery on April 8 to have a brain pacemaker implanted.

The implant will give her a 70-percent chance at walking again.
