Kali Hardig 'Able to Throw and Catch a Ball with her Therapists'

"There is no longer a question of whether she’ll survive and do well, but just how well.”
LITTLE ROCK, AR -- The family of Kali Hardig, the 12-year-old girl battling parasitic meningitis, has released a statement as well as Kali's physician, and it is great news.

“We continue to be amazed by Kali’s progress," her family said. "Today she’s able to sit up on her own, write some words on a white board and stand with assistance for very brief stretches. She’s even able to throw and catch a ball with her therapists. We are grateful for the continued prayers from Kali’s supporters, which no doubt drive her recovery.”

Dr. Vikki Stefans, Kali's attending physician at Arkansas Children's Hospital had this to say:
 
“Kali’s progress is definitely a credit to her wonderful family and support system.  There is no longer a question of whether she’ll survive and do well, but just how well.”

Kali is believed to be one of only three people to survive the infection.
