Christopher enters a shady patio outside the doctor’s office. The 8-year-old is sporting his school uniform – red top, blue shorts – and a face full of focus. Time for a test walk.

They peer particularly hard at Christopher’s right side – weakened by a stroke months before his birth.

His steps turn into a confident stroll. “That’s good!” his mom says.
