On National Cerebral Palsy Awareness Day we in the #CPChatNow community put out the welcome mat and presented our second ever focus chat. Rather than inviting an external expert to answer questions, we served as the experts. After all who knows more about cerebral palsy than us? We live with the disability!

Anticipation built to see who might take us up on the invite to ask us questions about cerebral palsy. Anticipation turned to excitement when two familiar faces returned.
