Cerebral Palsy Awareness Day is relatively new, having been passed by Congress in 2013. But, the disease is not new and probably affects the lives of someone you know. From Children’s Neurobiological Solutions:
March 25th is a day recognized by the United States as National Cerebral Palsy Awareness Day. Cerebral palsy (CP) is a neurological disorder that affects different motor functions resulting in physical disabilities. CP exists on a spectrum, meaning that the severity and depth of disabilities can vary widely amongst those affected.
