Most are Adults

Most of the more than 17 million people in the world living with Cerebral Palsy (CP) are adults. However, research focuses largely on children. Changing this narrative is the perfect reason for all to join My Cerebral Palsy. Lending your voice to lifespan research will help balance the scale and provide answers! By joining, you will:

  • participate in studies and forums.
  • be educated and no longer willing to accept “because you have CP” as the answer.

As with everyone, aging decreases our flexibility. The difference is that because muscle tightness is a major CP characteristic, we get a double dose. Because of that, there’s an impact on our GFMCS score which makes the changes harder to take.

Sharing your experiences will enlighten medical professionals. Letting them know that CP requires maintenance treatment to enable 17 million plus (and growing) persons to continue living their best lives.
