Meet Karen, who is sharing a poem she has written about her experience living with Cerebal Palsy.
My name is Karen and I have cerebral palsy and a few other disabilities. I love to read and write, and binge watch tv.
The 25th of March is National Cerebral Palsy awareness day. I would like people to know that cerebral palsy affects each person differently. No two people who have it are the same. One day I want to be a counsellor to help others with disabilities deal with their own battle scars and understand that it is okay to be different and whoever they want to be. It might be a long road to get there but one thing I know for sure is that I am no longer afraid to be me. Cerebral palsy and all, nothing is going to stop me.
