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!
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.
I will be on Kelly’s Choice Radio Show (click on the link to listen) with Edwina Wilson on today, March 3, from 2-3 p.m. EST discussing Cerebral Palsy Awareness Month, SDR, What CP Looks Like and more! I’m honored to be on the show two years in a row.

Forrest Gump was right — life is a box of chocolates, you never know what you’re going to get! I could have never predicted that in just a few short years, I’d be a respected advocate in the cerebral palsy community. Now, my advocacy work will effect change globally!
I’m honored to share a special announcement from World CP Day:
It is with great pleasure that I can confirm your appointment on the new World Cerebral Palsy Day (WCPD) Committee. Welcome!
The Committee comprises 12 people – including individuals with cerebral palsy, parents, and researchers/clinicians – from the USA, India, Singapore, Turkey, New Zealand, France, Nigeria, Mexico and the United Kingdom. We received almost 100 expressions of interest for this honorary role, which was quite extraordinary.
World CP Day is only in its 4th year but has exceeded all expectations – with participation from over 52 countries and thousands of individuals. With a modest budget, but a highly motivated community, it has the potential to be a powerful force for social impact to benefit people with CP and their families across the world.
Our aim is to support local action and, by doing so, build the global movement to ensure that people with CP have the same rights, access and opportunities as others in their communities.
Robyn Cummins, World Cerebral Palsy Day Manager”
