'It's Just Devastating,' Says Mom of 5-Year-Old Girl Paralyzed After Performing Backbend on Their Living Room Floor


OMG! my son do backbend sometimes. I'm going to stop him! 

This pretty little girl Eden Hoelscher was left paralyzed from the waist down in December after performing a backbend that damaged her entire spine – but the inspiring 5-year-old isn't letting the devastating injury crush her resilient spirit. 


Eden was doing gymnastic bridges on her living room floor at her home in Palos Verdes Peninsula, California, when she collapsed, complaining that her hips and legs felt like they were "sleeping." 

When her mom, 36-year-old Kylee Hoelscher, rushed her to the hospital, doctors informed the mother that Eden had lost her ability to walk. 


"The damage, it's her entire spine and it doesn't make any sense at all. It's just a backbend and it's just devastating. You go from watching your 100 percent independent kid who dressed herself, put her hair in a pony tail to not being able to get out of bed and it's almost impossible to bear," Kylee told ABC News



The mother says her daughter's bowels and bladder do not function and that her body cannot regulate its own temperature anymore. 



"In one instant, that backbend altered our lives forever," Kylee wrote on a GoFundMe page set up for Eden.
