Supporting kids with Cerebral Palsy
By: Ashley Moliere, Cerebral Palsy Association of British Columbia
Eight-year-old twins Savanna and Kaylee Morris both live with cerebral palsy. They have been members of the Cerebral Palsy Association of BC for five years. Both girls have also been recipients of our camp scholarships for three years. Their mother, Nicole Morris, credits their time at therapy camp as helping the girls grow and become more confident in their abilities. Nicole says that the girls attend the therapy camp with three other girls with cerebral palsy each year and love to interact with other kids just like them.
They look forward to the camp every year which is incredible.
Nicole also says that the girls are able to learn functional mobility skills while participating in fun activities. One big highlight from last year was Savanna being able to take her first independent steps at camp.
Without donors like Houle, stories like these might not be possible. Houle has shown their commitment to the Cerebral Palsy Association of BC with their generous contributions to our programs. Houle’s contributions have allowed us to increase the number of kids we can help send to camp each year. We are able to continue to provide scholarships so that students with cerebral palsy or other disabilities can attend university and college. These donations allow us to fund programs and services so that kids like Savanna and Kaylee can reach their full potential and live a Life Without Limits.
