The Cause

Together, we will accelerate discoveries and change what possible means for cerebral palsy.

Cerebral palsy is the most common lifelong physical disability in the world, and it is one of the most underfunded.

One in 323 babies is diagnosed with CP each year, and related lifetime costs have been estimated to exceed $1.2 million per person.
