Making Myself Move, CP-Style

THE SHORT VERSION: I'm doing Move4CP and would greatly appreciate your support — $5, $10, $100, $1,000 (!!). I'm taking this challenge because I have cerebral palsy, and NYC lockdown is a literal pain (among so many other things). My legs hurt WAY MORE because I'm not moving as much as I need to and I'm not getting my essential PT stretches, which I can't do on my own. I'm changing part of that starting today and committing to moving for ONE HOUR EVERY DAY over the next three weeks. Please cheer me on and toss a couple bucks my way.

THE LONGER VERSION: I care so much about the work I do at Cerebral Palsy Alliance Research Foundation every single day. It's been in every fiber of my being since I was born and now I get to use my voice to help other people with CP. People just like me, and people who live completely different lives from mine. The research we're supporting through Move4CP helps me — specifically, the work investigating chronic pain causes and treatments — and it helps all 18 million people with CP.

Yes, I said 18 MILLION. And 1 MILLION in the US. We might be in lockdown or quarantine or self-isolation, but CP persists. It demands to be felt and dealt with, whether we have the time, health, space, energy, or tools to do so. It's why our research retains urgency right now, even when everything feels urgent.

We persist, too, in the face of all of this. And we — I — need your help to keep CP research moving forward. Thank you for your support.

With love,
Jocelyn

Jocelyn, the MSM forums are what got me through High School; it taught me the best friends are the ones who share the same love of music! Here I am paying it forward- it's not much, but it's what I can do at the moment. -@injured_potato
