This is my senior year, and as most of you know I must complete a semester "senior" project. I've decided to do my project on Cerebral Palsy. From the day my cousin, Thad was diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy I knew I'd choose to do this. Thad has been my inspiration throughout this project. Cerebral Palsy is a disorder that messes with the brain and nervous system. That being said, Cerebral Palsy can sometimes cause you to never crawl, walk, etc. Thad is now two and has many struggles he faces daily. He can not walk yet, or barley sit up by hiself, so he needs special equipment such as strollers, car seats, and gait trainers. Just one stroller is $10, 000! I want to raise a minimum of $1,000 by the end of the semester to give to kids with Cerebral Palsy to help them purchase their special equipment, to give them a much better chance at life! Please, remember you're not doing this for me, but for wonderful children in need, like my amazing cousin, Thad. Thank you!
