"This is my son Elijah. He has hemiplegic cerebral palsy due to a stroke before he was born. Elijah has been on a mission since he was 5 years old to raise awareness about his stroke and cerebral palsy. When he was 7, he founded a not for profit organization called The Traveling Awareness Bears, Inc. Through his bears, he raises awareness all over the world about cerebral palsy, stroke and about 40 other medical conditions affecting children.
