Cerebral Palsy is a lifelong, and life-limiting condition normally caused by a brain injury during or shortly after birth. There are various levels of severity, some of which can result in the child being paralyzed, or unable to use certain groups of muscles. While you may have been aware of Cerebral Palsy, chances are you did not give it much thought until it directly affected you and your family.
