I'm moving CP research forward.
I’m taking part in the STEPtember challenge to raise funds and awareness for cerebral palsy research. I’ll be taking the equivalent of 10,000 steps a day for 28 days from September 1 – 28.
Cerebral palsy (CP) is the most common childhood-onset physical disability in the world. It’s a lifelong condition, and one in 323 babies is diagnosed with CP each year. Estimated related lifetime costs exceed $1.2 million per person.
Your generosity will accelerate groundbreaking research to treat, prevent, and ultimately cure this underfunded condition. Some of these vital research projects include:
- Training medical teams to detect CP in babies as young as three months old, so they can get timely physical therapy.
- Uncovering new chronic pain treatments and solutions for people with CP.
- Developing technology that will revolutionize communication for the millions of people with CP who can’t speak.
Please help me support this great cause by making a donation. I’ll know you’ve got my back. And that will mean so much to me — and to everyone with CP.
