March 25 is National Cerebral Palsy (CP) Awareness Day. Wear green to show your support! I took this picture after my workout. My socks have a bit of green in them! The word BRAVE (my word for 2014, painted beautifully by artist Shana Mattheis, is a reminder that everyone with CP is brave! We are capable, determined, and smart. CP does not define us!

In honor of National Cerebral Palsy Awareness Day, I wrote a guest blog post for Lamisha Serf’s Dream Changer series. I’m so happy to be a featured on this wonderful blog dedicated to helping women live our dreamiest lives. Thank you, Lamisha, for sharing my story with your readers. This will help raise awareness about selective dorsal rhizotomy (SDR).
