Beating brain cancer and giving back: Brodie’s story

Adalie's Story

Adalie's journey back to ballet after surgery

Adalie fell in love with dance when she was just 4 years old. As she grew up, she developed a worsening depression in her chest, known as pectus excavatum. This caused chest pain and shortness of breath, and limited her dancing abilities.
