6-year-old girl, who lost her limbs to meningitis at 9-months-old, learns gymnastics
A 6-year-old girl, who lost her limbs to meningitis at 9-months-old, just learned how to do her first ever forward roll.
Harmonie-Rose Allen was diagnosed with meningitis in September of 2014. The little powerhouse was only given a 10% chance of survival and doctors were forced to amputate her arms, legs and the tip of her nose.
But this month, Harmonie’s parents Freya Hall and Ross Allen have seen their daughter defy the odds…again! There have been many firsts for Harmonie in her journey, but each moment seems better than the last as she continues to reach new milestones. From learning how to walk to now doing a forward roll, nothing stands in this one’s way.
Her mom posted the sweet moment to Instagram, writing:
“This evening Harmonie [learned how to do] her first ever forward roll at @baskervillesgym! Wow we never thought this would be possible! Note to self never underestimate Harmonie-rose!!”
“I cannot even put into words how I was feeling 6 years ago today, but my gosh, look at this little beauty now! ❤️,” the proud mom added.
Great job, Harmonie! There is no doubt that you are destined for greatness.
