She got to ride in a red convertible at the front of the parade and wave to the audience. Participating in the Miss You Can Do It Pageant was not only a fun and exciting experience for Daleney but also a great way for her parents to network and find new technology to help with her cerebral palsy. Her father Dave says, "A great part of the pageant is not just what it does for the girls, but also what it does for the parents. We never would have learned about the innovative treatment, Bioness, if not for our friends the Wellmans, who we met at the pageant. Since Daleney started using Bioness she has had less trouble with foot drop. She has also been exposed to a new experimental treatment called the Gait Trainer which is a robotic pediatric treadmill program that Daleney does twice a week to help build muscle memory and correct her gait.
