Today was World CP Day! Thank you for wearing green in support of Madison and her friends and for sharing your pics with us!
Cerebral palsy is the most common childhood physical disability (affecting an average of one in every 500 people). There are over 17 million people living with CP, tens of millions of family members devoting their lives to the care of their loved ones, and tens of thousands of doctors and therapists involved in the diagnosis and treatment of CP.
When people with CP have the same opportunity as everyone else to live up to their potential, they prove how significant it can be—not just for individuals with CP, but for everyone in the society’s in which they live.
One need not look any further than the poets and comedians and computer programmers and writers and activists living with CP to realise what a powerful contribution the community of people living with CP can make around the world.
Thank you for your continued support!
Madison had a great start to her day. Mommy visited her class to talk about Cp and shared some of Madison’s tools with the class, read a book called Lemon the Duck and then celebrated with green cupcakes! Check out the live video on Madi Moves Facebook for a re-cap of the presentation.
Her afternoon was a typical Friday – physio and then swimming at VV. Lots of walking in the gym and water jogging in the pool! Madi and Jack LOVED their swim lesson tonight!
The end of the day was spent celebrating Thanksgiving with Grandma and Grandpa Ambos and Aunt Emily.
