The Cerebral Palsy Family Network

Originally started by a group of families whose children developed cerebral palsy (CP) due to medical errors and birth injuries, the Cerebral Palsy Family Network (CPFN) is the world's largest online community for connecting and supporting families like theirs. In partnership with Howard Janet, founder of the Cerebral Palsy Family Lawyers of Janet, Janet & Suggs, LLC, and Dr. Giles Manley, a board-certified OBGYN, CPFN provides families with access to the educational, emotional, and financial resources they need to care for their loved ones.

A Community That Understands

Caring for a child with CP can be confusing and, at times, lonely. CPFN is a place where you can ask questions, connect with families facing similar challenges and gain insights into how to give your child the best care possible. Whether your child’s CP was the result of a medical error or some other cause, you’ll find a wealth of information and encouragement on our pages.

We Are Stronger Together

We know first-hand how overwhelming CP can be. Armed with the knowledge of over 100K community members, we’ve outlined the diagnosis process, medical resources and treatments, as well as potential solutions to financial pitfalls many families encounter. By connecting with other families and sharing what works, we are stronger together.

CP Hero

There is nothing more exciting to us than celebrating the strong and courageous individuals and families in our community who are living with cerebral palsy. We love hearing your inspirational stories and sharing them with the CPFN community as our CP Heroes. We receive submissions from families all over the world and share them here on our website and our Facebook page.
