My Jackson Miracle

Ella Chase, 14, started taking gymnastics classes at age 7, and immediately fell in love with the sport. She soon began practicing five hours a day, five days a week. In March 2021, the Orlando native was in the middle of her gymnastics season when she began feeling a pain in her back. Growing more concerned for their daughter, Paul and Jennifer Chase sought the help of their local doctor, who diagnosed Ella with a stress fracture. Facing the daunting possibility of having to permanently leave gymnastics, the Chase family searched online and came across Allan D. Levi, MD, PhD, chief of neurosurgery at Jackson Memorial Hospital.
