Home / News / Beermann Announced as February Hot Shot
Brinlee Beermann, daughter of Chris and Justine, has been named the February Hot Shot. Brinlee is 7 and attends 1st grade at Franklin Elementary School. She is a sweet girl who enjoys playing outside and with her dolls. When she was 6 months old she was diagnosed with Duane’s Syndrome. Brinlee loves her occupational and speech therapists and is working hard to get stronger in completing her every days tasks.
Duane’s Syndrome is a congenital and non-progressive type of eye issue that is characterized by difficulty in rotating one or both eyes outward or inward. Since Duane’s Syndrome is most often caused by the miswiring of nerves, surgery cannot restore the normal eye movement but help in eye position by moving the eye muscles. It is has been estimated that Duane’s Syndrome affects 1 – 1,000 to 1 in 10,000 people worldwide.
Please join us in celebrating Brinlee, our February Hot Shot!
The Sioux City Musketeers, in partnership with Floyd Valley Healthcare (FVH) began the Hot Shots program in 2018. This program was created with the goal of honoring FVH pediatric patients who have chronic health issues. We are excited to give children an opportunity to have a fun time with their family, cheer on the team and just enjoy being a kid for a night.
