2 Doctors predicted she would die. She was born with a risk of cerebral palsy


When Mariana’s mother was pregnant, Doctors felt the fetus would be born dead. They didn’t even attempt to save her. Fate decreed otherwise and Mariana was born a premature baby. Because of poor medical supervision, she was deprived of oxygen at birth and risked contracting brain damage. The lack of oxygen resulted in a condition of cerebral palsy which she mentions in her Instagram account smoking guns. However, Mariana survived.

As a child, she was gravely ill. If you see these photos of her childhood, it would be impossible to believe it is the same young woman. She was an exhausted young girl who lived in a wheelchair and suffered several physiological problems. She was different from other kids and couldn’t even walk like a normal child.
