Has Your Child Been Diagnosed With Cerebral Palsy?

Cerebral palsy is a debilitating disease that can be the result of injury to the brain during the birthing process or failure to adequately monitor the pregnancy. It is often preventable and, quite unfortunately, can be the result of negligence on the part of a hospital, doctors, nurses or staff employed there.

No family should have to endure the heartache of learning that their beautiful newborn has this condition and will face a lifetime of complications and hardship from it.

The Lifelong Effects Of This Condition

As babies with cerebral palsy grow into childhood, they often find their abilities to perform activities of daily life a challenge. Most often, various muscles throughout their bodies do not respond as they should to the signals from the brain. This can result in:

  • Physical instability
  • Problems with common motor functions
  • Difficulty speaking
  • Limited cognitive development
  • Limited mobility
  • Confinement to a wheelchair

Those suffering from cerebral palsy often require a lifetime of assistive care from those who love them. As they reach adulthood, the strain on the parents and siblings can become significant. The financial toll alone can easily drain your life savings.
