My Guest Radio Show Host Gig for Kelly’s Choice

Cerebral Palsy Awareness Month was busy for me! I did two radio shows, my article got published by The Mighty, I participated in a video project (click on the link to watch) featuring five adults with cerebral palsy and my Facebook page, What CP Looks Like, reached thousands of people! Thank you to everyone who submitted pictures and greatest gift videos to my page.

The month ended on a high note. I was the guest host — first time doing this — and a guest on Kelly’s Choice Radio Show (click on the link to listen) on March 31, 2017.  Back by popular demand, me and my friend, Matt Rich, talked about a lot of topics during the show: why cerebral palsy awareness matters, the media blackout, how people can get involved & advocate on social media and more!

Why Cerebral Palsy Awareness Matters

The Mighty published the article I wrote for Cerebral Palsy Awareness Day! Click here to read it.

Please wear green on March 25 (and throughout the rest of March) to show support! You can also send me your pictures or post them on What CP Looks Like.

Thanks for supporting the 17 million people worldwide living with cerebral palsy.
