Alexanders journey with CP

Cerebral Palsy (CP)

Kelsey and Alexander

Alexanders journey

My name is Alexander Kal El, I am 17 months old. At the age of 7 months I was diagnosed with spastic cerebral palsy. I have mixed tones (hypotonia & hypertonia) and was recently diagnosed with CVI (cortical vision impairment). Since I was about 2-3 months old I have had to live with laryngomalacia which causes me to burn calories very quickly so gaining weight is a constant battle. I see many doctors, specialists, and therapists. I don't let any of my disabilities define who I am and stop me from smiling and moving forward everyday. I know there was a reason god wanted mommy and daddy to name me Kal El (after superman) because I am a fighter and many people see me as a hero!
