This is my Second fundraiser Using Y O G A as a platform to raise awareness for something that touches so close to my Family. At 12months old Khloe was diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy from a stroke in utero. I thought having twins was a game changer but Twins and "Special Needs" was really going to keep me busy. Cerebral Palsy is a developmental disorder and appeares differently in every case. For our Khloe she works through Right side tightness from the top of her head down to her toes. At 12 months Khloe was not crawling or walking and could only roll on one side. She began services at UCP-OC.
Being the "Head of Household" for three children can leave you strapped for extra cash most months. We have been blessed to have insurance that covers Khloes healthcare expenses, however we have not been able to explore to many other option that are not covered by insurance (I.e. Yoga, Massage, accupunture, chiropractic, botox) So the Mission of this fundraiser is to Raise Money to build up the Yoga Threapy Program at UCP-OC where Khloe attends Physical, Occupational, and Speech therapy. Making specialized Yoga mats more accessable to the children and families involved in the program, reaching more families and documenting success stories. We are starting to understand the benefits of having Yoga in our daily lives. Imagine a world where all children are allowed access to the powerful beneifts yoga has on our mind-body& soul. 100% of the proceeds raised will go to building out UCP-OC Yoga Therapy program. Making the program more accessable to all families.
