YouTube success may seem like a strange subject for this blog, but one of the top YouTubers this year is a five-year-old who was diagnosed with cerebral palsy. She made $18 million off of her channels last year! Russia Beyond reported on her story.
Nastya Radzinskaya was born in Russia in 2014 and was diagnosed with cerebral palsy. The cause according to her doctors was intrauterine trauma. They said that she would never be able to walk or talk.
