Once a year, Telethon gives the Rehab Center the opportunity to share the stories of our patients and thank the generous donors who make it all possible. We hope you will consider giving a gift this year to support the patients of the Rehab Center and make sure they can receive the therapy services that they need.

Meet Dalilah, a vibrant 5 year old girl with a sweet loving heart. Dalilah is a daughter, a student, a friend and a fun, vibrant patient at the Permian Basin Rehabilitation Center. She is playful, loving and entertains everyone in the room when she walks in. Full of energy and charm, Dalilah quickly steals the hearts of all who meet her.
Diagnosed with William’s Syndrome, a rare genetic disorder affecting fewer than 20,000 cases per year in the US. Dalilah has been attending occupational and physical therapy since she was 10 months old. She presented with developmental delays such as inability to roll, sit, or hold her head upright for very long due to low muscle tone, as well as significant delays in her speech development. Crawling was her least favorite skill due to the amount of energy it would take her to participate. At 2 years and 4 months, Dalilah began to take independent steps and once she began walking, her greatest limitation was her fear of falling. Dalilah has also been in speech therapy at the Rehab Center. At 21 months old, Dalilah had no vocabulary, which hindered her ability to play appropriately and limited her interaction with others. She can now name, describe and request things she wants and is working on 3 word phrases to describe actions and desires. Dalilah has overcome her fears and with the help of therapy staff and her family, Dalilah has begun talking, walking, and playing.
All of Dalilah’s accomplishments have been made because of the support the Rehab Center receives from donors like you. Your gift during the Permian Basin Rehab Telethon will make a difference for patients just like Dalilah. Your gift will help patients and families right here in the Permian Basin. Your tax free donation will be used to provide therapy services to patients facing obstacles and challenges due to Autism, Down syndrome, birth defects, stroke or head injury. You can make a difference for them!
