Student Spotlight – Eileen

Eileen and Patricia

Meet participant Eileen (left) and her friend Patricia (right). Eileen jokes that if someone is going to get diagnosed with something, she has already had it. A brain tumor, a stroke, dystonia and now breast cancer, she has a feisty fighting spirit! Eileen already knows what the other participants of Rx Ballroom Dance have figured out- if you want to keep your brain and body healthy, keep on dancing!

Eileen’s biggest obstacle continues to be her balance and coordination from the struggles with dystonia (involuntary muscle contractions). But Eileen is a fighter and is determined to get the steps correct. She gets the student of the week alert for amazing concentration and determination while working on her core and posture! Go Eileen!
