A HERO can be anyone you admire.
Eddie Becker's hero is his daughter, Erika. Erika
has cerebral palsy and underwent a back
operation to help her walk better.
ERIKA: "I have a problem called cerebral palsy.
It's where my brain tells my legs I should walk a
funny way. Before I had an operation, I'd walk
really crooked and funny, and people would
laugh at me and I'd get hurt, so I had an
operation to make me walk straighter."
For Erika the worst part of being handicapped is
being made fun of. "It really hurts," she says,
"even if you try and ignore them, it really hurts. Even grown-ups, they treat
me differently, but that's because I'm different. Nobody is the same, so they
don't treat all of us the same because we're all different."
