On 1/21/2014, then 4 year old Leah suffered a Traumatic Brain Injury from a fall that resulted in a occipital bone fracture, 2 brain bruises (frontal lobe and anterior lobe), 2 brain bleeds, her brain seized for 8 and a half hours, she had the highest grade concussion and was in
a coma for 16 hours. Upon release from the hospital Leah continued with Posttraumatic Seizures, difficulty with balance, mood and behavior issues, headaches and dizziness. Leah received outpatient PT and

On 12/26/2016 Leah fell again re-aggravating her previous TBI and sustaining another high grade concussion. Leah has been experiencing distractibility, limited attention, difficulty processing auditory and visual information, and deficits in executive functioning. Leah was inpatient for 10 days and has been being treated at AI DuPont Hospital for Children in Delaware since her release 5 days a week up to 6 hours
a day. Leah’s day consists of Speech Therapy, Occupational Therapy, Physical Therapy, an hour of School (In DuPont) and also Behavioral Therapy. Currently, Leah has many restrictions, one of which is school. In order for Leah to receive the treatment she needs her mother, Jackie Norbeck needs to be out of work in order to care for her. She follows up regularly at DuPont and will remain in treatment there.
Leah also gets a lot of support from dad – John Ladislaw, her 9 year old brother Luke Ladislaw, and her 16 year old sister – Alyssa Norbeck. The whole family is excited to be part of the Homers for Hope family. They are thankful for any assistance you can give.
