2013 Cerebral Palsy Telethon
This past weekend, I had the awesome opportunity to co-host the 2013 Acadiana telethon for Cerebral Palsy of Louisiana. I worked with and met some truly inspiration people, both those who volunteer because they have a family member or loved one struggling with CP and those who volunteered because they want to help out.
I honestly didn't know anything about CP before doing the telethon, but now I feel I know the two most important things to know. First, CP is not a disease, it's a condition, one that adversely affects a child's motor abilities. Also, The average lifetime cost for a person with cerebral palsy totals nearly $1 million over and above the costs experienced by a person without the disability.
