Like so many of our patients, eighteen-year-old Don-Seymour entered CDTC through our Early Steps Program. Born premature, he has developmental delays, ADHD and asthma. Today, he is a part of our ECHO program and recently began receiving Dental Care in our clinic.
To all the members of Don-Seymour’s Care Team, he is truly a hero for how much he has matured over the past few years. They all agree, he’s not the same shy, quite guy he used to be.
He attends Plantation High School where he is currently in the 12th grade. Much of his growth and maturity shines through his work this past year with United Community Options’ (UCO, formerly United Cerebral Palsy) vocational training program.
Don-Seymour is proud of his current job at Walgreens, where he is learning responsibility stocking shelves. He is also learning to use the cash register. He continues to attend the UCO program after school.
Don-Seymour is a friendly and outgoing young man. He is always smiling and polite to others. He strives to be independent and looks forward to his future with enthusiasm.
About our Hero of the Month

Their stories are powerful and heartwarming and reflect the impact CDTC and you, our community, has on their daily lives.
Thank You to
A trip to our Clinic is more than just a doctor’s visit to a child with special healthcare needs.
But, insurance doesn’t cover everything. That’s why your gift is so important.
