Palsy Power

STEPtember 2020

Cerebral palsy is personal.

PALSY POWER is a group of people who are ready to move all STEPtember long to move cerebral palsy research forward.

I hope my teammates will share their stories. Here's mine: I care so much about the work I do at Cerebral Palsy Alliance Research Foundation every single day. It's been in every fiber of my being since I was born and now I get to use my voice to help other people with CP. People just like me, and people who live completely different lives from mine.

The research we're supporting through STEPtember helps me — specifically, the work investigating chronic pain causes and treatments — and it helps all 18 million people with CP.

Yes, I said 18 MILLION. And 1 MILLION in the US. Yes, we're in a pandemic, but CP persists. It demands to be felt and dealt with, whether or not we have the time, health, space, energy, or tools to do so. It's why our research retains urgency right now, even when so much feels urgent alongside it.

We persist, too, in the face of all of this. And we — I — need your help to keep CP research moving forward. Thank you for your support.

With love,
Jocelyn
