When Liza Huber was told her son Brendan had cerebral palsy in 2010, she says she “just froze.”
“I broke down in tears,” Huber tells PEOPLE. “I felt sadness that he would deal with cerebral palsy for the rest of his life, but I also felt gratitude that he could walk. Many others cannot.”
Huber, the daughter of soap opera legend Susan Lucci, exclusively reveals the courageous story of her 7-year-old son, Brendan, in this week’s issue of PEOPLE. Her candid interview comes after years of keeping silent about her son’s condition.
