In the wake of all the drama, stress and heartbreak surrounding daughter Ali Simms’ tragic diagnosis, Leah Messer says the toddler is defying doctors’ predictions.
The Teen Mom 2 star's offspring isn't just mobile, she's nearly running these days, despite doctors saying she'd likely require a wheelchair soon, and for life.
It's possible she will indeed be bound to a wheelchair, but for the time being, she's carrying on and making progress with no need of such assistance at all.
In a recent interview, Leah and ex-husband Corey Simms, said they are going to remain positive despite the muscular dystrophy that has hampered her.
“Ali is running!” gushed Leah. “She’s doing so much better than expected. We don’t know what the future holds, but this is proof that we should not give up hope.”
If you watch Teen Mom 2 online, you know that Corey, 24, "refuses to accept" Ali’s condition, especially as the little girl seems to be doing so well.
