World Cerebral Palsy Day

Today is World Cerebral Palsy Day, a day that’s all about ideas that will change the world for people with cerebral palsy.

“Last year’s winners include a designer walker and a spill-proof cup. I have an idea—but the thing is, it already exists. The concept: More research for cerebral palsy. Some 17 million people across the world have cerebral palsy, and an estimated 350 million are closely connected to a child with CP. It is the most common childhood physical disability—and yet, there’s been a severe lack of federal funding for research into treatment and prevention.” – Ellen Seidman

So your asking what can I do on this day?

If you have an idea to change the world for people with cerebral palsy go to: http://en.worldcpday.org/

Or

Help fund the desperate need for research. Our US based cerebral palsy organizations that are funding research and leading national advocacy efforts for the CP community are:

LetsCureCPReaching for the Stars. A Cerebral Palsy Foundation,  Cerebral Palsy International Research Foundation

Or

Make a direct impact on Mattie’s life and help fund a trip to NY so she can get new leg braces by making a donation HERE.

Lets take advantage of this national recognized day and do something for the 17 million people across the world who have Cerebral Palsy. Please and Thank you!
