Cerebral Palsy Month

 

March is Cerebral Palsy Awareness Month. Don’t feel bad if you did not know that.

I always thought March was Women’s History Month. ~ Maysoon Zayid, actress

I’m not saying ‘I have cerebral palsy, pay attention to me.’ We all have problems, and we have to figure out how to live our best life. ~ Zach Anner
