As we enter Cerebral Palsy Awareness Month, it’s important to take a moment to recognize and appreciate the incredible accomplishments of those living with this condition. Cerebral palsy is a condition that affects movement and posture and is caused by damage to the brain before, during, or soon after birth. While it’s often seen as a disability, it’s important to remember that it doesn’t define a person, and many individuals living with cerebral palsy have achieved great successes.
The month of March is an important time to recognize the achievements of those living with cerebral palsy. We should celebrate the successes of individuals who have learned to live and thrive despite their conditions. From athletes to artists, those living with Cerebral Palsy have used their unique perspective to create inspiring works.
On the other hand, Cerebral Palsy Awareness Month is also a time to acknowledge the unique challenges those living with the condition face. From the lack of accessibility in our society to the lack of understanding of their condition, these individuals often struggle to find a place in the world. This month is an important reminder to reach out to those living with cerebral palsy to offer help and lend an ear.
As we move forward into Cerebral Palsy Awareness Month, let’s remember to both celebrate the successes of those living with this condition and to support them in their struggles. Whether it’s offering a kind word or helping with physical access, each one of us can make a difference in the lives of those living with cerebral palsy.
