This is my daughter Yusra. We share her story from Johannesburg,South Africa. She will be turning 2 next week. She was born a healthy baby. Due to high jaundice after birth, she was diagnosed with dystonic cerebral palsy. As a result of the jaundice, she also has a severe to profound hearing loss, and last year she's been through surgery for a cochlear implant. Even though she is unable to sit,walk or talk, she is the light of our lives! Her amazing smile makes our daily challenges…

My awesome boy Ryan who just turned 2 was diagnosed yesterday with Hemiplegia Spastic CP and it affects his left leg. He has increased muscle bulk poor tone and a foot that will not bend at all. He is no where near standing and walking. He and his twin were 6 weeks early. He is a cheeky happy boy who runs on his knees.  I don't think much will stop him achieving what he wants in life.

This is my 5 year old son, Beau. I cannot tell you the joy and light he has brought to our lives. Currently he is writing a book to share with the other pre-k kiddos at his school. I was a little nervous about his starting school last fall but he has proven to me that he does not think he is not an exception to the rule but an exceptional kid! This is our ROCK STAR.....BEAU!

I was hoping to find some people to share their experience with me. This is my daughter Aaliyah. She is a twin, born at 29 weeks. She suffered from a bilateral brain bleed and was later diagnosed with PVL. She is 11 months old. She is delayed, and she is hypertonic, mostly in her legs. I was wondering when your child was diagnosed with cerebral palsy. Her doctor wants to wait and see how she does. She does get PT and OT twice weekly, and it hasn't helped her. Any advice is appreciated!

My little gal, Lundyn, wearing her AFOs for the very first time! She was diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy (spastic diplegia) in December. She isn't walking yet, but she has an exceptional team of professionals helping her along!     I can't say that I'd be coping so well with her diagnoses without CPFN and those like you providing a plethora of information and connecting affected families to one another.   I extend my sincere gratitude to you all.

Kody, my wonderful, joyful nephew, is probably the only 5 year old in the world who enjoys and laughs while doing chores! He brings so much joy into the lives of everyone he meets!
