Mary Maloney Continuing To Make Strides In Recovery Following Rare Spinal Injury

By: KDKA-TV News Staff

PITTSBURGH (KDKA) -- Many people regularly message KDKA or send emails asking for a progress update on KDKA reporter Pam Surano's daughter Mary Maloney.

New video shows Mary's leg regaining its reflex.

Last month, Mary began taking steps on her own as she continues to recover from a rare spinal stroke suffered during a trampoline accident.

Doctors in Louisville, KY say this means there's activity below her level of injury, reinforcing there is hope.

Mary's mom Pam said they've endured week after week when doctors couldn't get a smidge of a reflex, so this is positive news.
