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’m so thankful to have been published by The Mighty twice in two days! Click on the link to read what it’s like growing up with cerebral palsy.
Will you do me a favor? Comment directly under the article on The Mighty’s site and please share to raise awareness for cerebral palsy and SDR.
Thank you! ❤
This article for The Mighty inspired me to create an event to change the way the media describes people with cerebral palsy in news stories AND encourage awareness by announcing National CP Awareness Day, Cerebral Palsy Awareness Month and World CP Day on television.
Please join my Facebook event and SHARE! Everyone who has CP, loves someone who has CP or wants more media attention/awareness for CP, is welcome to join! And, contact me if you have experience writing press releases and/or know how, where to contact the media to encourage them to stop media ignorance surrounding cerebral palsy, and to start spreading awareness.
We need to start sending out e-mails, messages, etc., now. I started this by myself and I need help! Together, WE can achieve this goal! Thanks and much ❤ for the support. #cerebralpalsyawareness #mediaignorance
