It's Cerebral Palsy Awareness Day
Posted Mar 26, 2021 by Jacquie Robison
Building community is core to the WAWOS ethos. When the first walkercape was donated just over 3 years ago, the goal was for it to be about more than giving a cape...I wanted to spark conversations. To create connections. And to encourage others to look beyond an assistive device and see the person.
Being seen is a simple yet powerful gift, and inclusion is an incredibly loving act. When you include someone who is different than you, you show them love. And the example of your love radiates.
For me, opening up about my experience with our amazing CP warrior daughter and putting it into the collective space has been a source of tremendous strength. In being a little vulnerable, our family has learned and shared, and we've gently challenged the way others think about a diagnosis of cerebral palsy.
I've met so many wonderful individuals, families and organizations on this journey. From Kristina Mulligan and Nicole Luongo who work tirelessly to raise awareness for CP research, to these nonprofits m
aking adventures accessible for all abilities. I'm grateful to each of them, and to so many more.
