Eden did a backbend in her living room on December 23, 2015 and suffered a spinal cord stroke, leaving her paralyzed from the waist down.
Her best friend, Violet, and her family came to visit six months after Eden's injury. Eden told her mom one day: "Mom, Violet loves me so much. Her love is so strong, I think when she's here, I'm going to walk." The very first day she came, Eden took her first assisted steps, using the harness and walker.
