welcome to a community that cares
CPFN was founded to help everyone impacted by CP and birth injuries – including children, their families and their loved ones. Within our community, you will discover many ways to connect with one another, both online (through our Facebook page & CP Hero features) and in-person (through our events). From CP fundraisers and community events to connecting on Facebook and sharing photos capturing day-to-day life, countless families have found the friendship, care and support they needed along their CP journey.
“I love this page and find it so inspirational. I have a 3-year-old son with CP. My little guy has been through a lot and he keeps fighting, always amazing me with something new. But most importantly, he puts a smile on my face every time I see him, and he lets me know that with faith and a positive attitude you can get through anything. Seeing the posts of other parents talking about how much they love their child and how amazing their child is very touching.”
Robert, Father of a son with CP
“It is great to have pages like this where those or families of those with CP can relate themselves to things they go through. I am 30 years old and have mild Spastic Diplegia in my legs. I’ve held a job as a cashier at Kroger for nearly 9 years and though strenuous on my legs and back (I also have scoliosis) at times, I wouldn’t change the people I’ve met or worked with or my job. I hope this can motivate and show others with CP that anything is possible when you are as determined as I am to not let having a disability get you down!”
Rebecca, Lives with CP
“What an awesome site for everyone to share their stories and reach out to others who face the same obstacles!! My son got diagnosed with spastic diplegia CP. We are beginning our long journey to building him a better future. He is very motivated and that’s what keeps us going!!! I’m glad I’ll have a place to share his story and help others if needed.”
Nicole, Mother of a son with CP

“We suspected medical mistakes and birth injuries were to blame for our child’s cerebral palsy, and knew we needed legal help. JJS Justice found the answers to our questions and won settlements that will take care of our child for the rest of our lives.”
