Appropriate Dedicated Funding for Cerebral Palsy Prevention, Treatment and Cure Research

It is astounding that research for Cerebral Palsy, the most common motor disability in children, impacting over 800,000 Americans is so drastically underfunded.

There is no dedicated, line item federal research funding for Cerebral Palsy at the CDC or NIH.  More research would mean the possibility of prevention and earlier diagnosis, more effective treatment options, and eventually the possibility of a cure.

Please sign the pledge today. Let's tell Congress we need more support for CP research.  The status quo simply isn't good enough. Not when so many lives and families are affected.

Please join Reaching for the Stars (http://reachingforthestars.org/) in recognizing National Cerebral Palsy Awareness Month by signing and sharing this petition today.
