Smiling With Cerebral Palsy

Cerebral Palsy (CP)

Yessenia Luna

The Day I was born

My name is Yessenia Luna and I have Cerebral Palsy. On April 2nd, 1999, I was born dead due to negligence by the nurse who was responsible for taking care of my mom when she was in labor, getting ready to have me. The doctors brought me back to life, but the damage produced by the inability to breathe was incurable. 

My family has always been there for me. My parents have sacrificed time from their other children to be able to take me to physical therapy appointments and surgeries that would help me to be independent. My parents are the reason I’m the girl I am: strong, hard worker, brave and never giving up. Having Cerebral Palsy is hard but not impossible. I’m 18 now and my goals are to be a fashion designer and a wheelchair model to represent people with disabilities.
