Cerebral Palsy (CP)

Karisa & Cru

Roll with it

My name is Cru, and I have Spastic Diplegia meaning I have especially high and constant "tightness & stiffness" in my hamstrings. I was born at just 26 weeks gestation. I had pneumonia when I was 3 months old and developed a brain bleed that caused the Cerebral Palsy. Cerebral Palsy is not hereditary and no 2 people with Cerebral Palsy are alike or have the same symptoms. There is no cure . I am not cognitively impaired, I can talk fine, I am very social and I love to learn. I play on a baseball team and love to swim. You'll never see me without a smile.
