August 5th to 12th is National Cerebral Palsy Awareness Week.

Please take some time to read through Isla's site, or visit The Spastic Centre Website or CP Australia to see what's going on in the world of CP.

It is estimated that in Australia alone, a child is born with CP every 18 hours.

Cerebral Palsy is a permanent condition that affects movement. There are three different types of CP, Spastic (which Isla has, which is increased tone), Dyskinetic (Athetoid and Dystonic) and Ataxic.

Please help increase awareness of CP :)
