Olivia was a typical 7 year old little girl. She loved unicorns, American Girls, spending time with her little brother, and playing travel soccer. A few weeks before her 8th birthday she started to complain about shoulder pain. We attributed her discomfort from a fall from snow boarding but brought her to an orthopedist to get her checked out. The doctor said it seemed to be a bad sprain and it should heal in a week or two. However, the pain continued to increase and poor Liv would wake up screaming every night. After many sleepless nights along multiple doctor' visits, x-rays, and MRIs, we knew something wasn't right and it had to be more then a shoulder injury. Trusting our instincts, we took Liv to the emergency room at the Childrens Hospital of Philadelphia. After several hours the doctors thought it was a nerve issue and ordered an MRI.
