Lexie Comeau-Drisdelle was born with cerebral palsy; as a result, she is unable to speak. So, when Lexie’s grandmother heard her terrified screams one day, she knew that something was wrong. When the older woman went to investigate, though, she realized that Lexie’s baby brother was in mortal danger.
Lexie comes from the town of Halifax in Nova Scotia, Canada. And since birth, she has been dealing with cerebral palsy – a condition that may lead to weak muscles, lack of coordination and difficulty in speaking or hearing.
Because of her particular symptoms, Lexie is therefore reliant on a wheelchair and cannot walk and talk. Sometimes, then, she is unable to keep up with her two siblings – including her little brother Leeland. However, nothing would prevent Lexie from coming to Leeland’s rescue during one fateful day in May 2018.
