Never Give Up, Never Surrender with Cerebral Palsy

Cerebral Palsy (CP)

Michael Paul

Advocating for Cerebral Palsy through "Cerebral Ballsy"

Hello, my name is Mikey, I am twenty-five years old. I have been in a wheelchair since I was two due to a virus in my brain. The virus almost killed me and I wasn't supposed to live to see my fifth birthday. 

In the present day, I do well for myself. I am in school to become an addiction counselor, I am a motivational speaker, a professional knife sharpener and I have my own children's charity that I do from the profits of what I get from sharpening knives. I also do videos for YouTube. Our YouTube and Facebook name is "Cerebral Ballsy." I use these platforms to inspire and motivate. Due to a recent suicide attempt and a dark place in my mind, I knew I had to change my ways, so i started "free hugs" where I give out free hugs to people who promise to smile. After that I started my charity for children, where i take the profits that I earn and I go to local kids stores and pay for customer's toys. I want people to know to never give up and never surrender, no matter what.
