Lindsey Summers says she dreams of seeing her son walk.

Jacob, 19, with quadriplegic cerebral palsy that affects his arms and legs, uses a wheelchair.

But thanks to a new machine at his school, Jacob is able to move his legs for the first time.

“I have a dream that my son Jacob can walk and it’s exciting, but I see it coming true,” Lindsey said. “I think that’s the most important dream that I hope to achieve.”
