Hailey's Story

Pre-schooler Hailey from Hanover Township is full of life: energetic, expressive, and eager to play, climb, and explore the world around her. Thanks to the support of the therapists atAllied Services' John P. Moses Esq. Wilkes-Barre Pediatric Rehab Center in partnership with AllOne Foundation & Charities, she's doing more of what she loves.

Hailey was born with a genetic disorder that causes cerebellar ataxia - an inability or difficulty coordinating muscle movement. This affects her balance, coordination, and speech development.

Hailey has been receiving speech, occupational, and physical therapy at Allied Services since she was just 9 months old.

“She’s progressing and achieving her goals," says proud Mom Lori. "Before starting regular therapy, Hailey wasn’t able to communicate beyond pointing. Now, she gives “yes” or “no” answers and is working on more. She’s such a smart kid, intelligent and determined. She picks anything up so fast."

Watch out for Hailey! With the continued support of her family and therapy team, she's going places!

John P. Moses Esq. Pediatric Rehab Centers

Each year, Allied Services provides:

  • 29,784 pediatric therapy appointments.
  • 8,524 hours of treatment to children on Medical Assistance.
  • Services for 1,200 children in the Wyoming Valley.

Each year, the Pediatric Program in Scranton and Wilkes-Barre provides life-changing care to children, many of whom are underinsured or uninsured. Sustaining costly services and ensuring access to care for children in our area has become increasingly challenging due in part to escalating healthcare expenses and restrictive reimbursement rates. The heavy annual expenses incurred by the program place these vital pediatric services at risk.

Now, with the help of AllOne Foundation & Charities and YOU, we're raising funds to sustain this vital program for children with disabilities, life-changing injuries, and chronic illnesses.
