Nora, 8 years old, attended Camp Helping Hands, an intensive 3-week day camp designed to improve strength and movement for children with Hemiplegia Cerebral Palsy, with an emphasis on strengthening the weaker side as a result of CTCF generous supporters.

Nora tells her therapist things like, “I need you to teach my body how to go down the stairs carrying my doll all by myself”, or “I want to learn to move around school easier so that I can spend more time with my friends..” Clearly this is a very motivated, social kiddo who gets all that she can from her therapies and has learned a lot at her young age about self-advocacy.

Mom volunteers to run a monthly support group for parents in her community as her way of ‘paying it forward’.
