The Continued Hopes With Cerebral Palsy

Cerebral Palsy Keeps Me Determined

My name is Alyssa Brown. Here is a little piece of my life story.  Ever dream of doing something all the time? I do. Will I stop until I do? Nope. This picture was taken 3 years ago. I am able to stand in place and look "normal" for the most part, but not for very long and I can not walk independently. I have a brain injury known as #cerebralpalsy. Doctors told my Mom that I'd never roll over or do anything for myself. They didn't even think I'd make it past my stay in the hospital after birth. 

I am currently a 20-year-old college student who is learning to drive and although every day is a physical challenge, I have hope that I will walk independently one day so that independence will come easier. With all of the odds that I've beaten, I have no doubt that I (and you) will reach personal goals. It will take a lot of work, I may want to quit, but it's been said that nothing worth it will come easy. I am thankful for the treatments, people, and doctors that don't give up on helping me fight for what I deserve. 

I have had many miracles in my life, I am not looking for a complete cure as of now, it would be nice, but I have determination to make it an easier life. The millions of stories like mine are the reason why we need to fight for continued and affordable healthcare. I hope you continue to follow my story and help me bring awareness to making a difference in this world.  My Instagram, Twitter, and Snapchat are abandcp97.
