What kind of tampons is he using?
 
2013-10-15 09:40:49 AM
He's quite balsy for someone with palsy.
 
2013-10-15 09:42:39 AM
Yeah, but does he do them well?

I say I play baseball.

He should be in a tampon advert

It's always uplifting to see kids with such severe mental retardation get a chance to do exciting and fun things before their bodies give out and they pass away. The smiles on their faces really makes volunteering worthwhile.

Show-off. Attention whore. I bet his next trick is to have a happy, fulfilled life despite his medical problems. Loser.

/that's awesome. there's nothing like volunteering to help other meet their goals. Make it a goal.

I know a guy with CP that is divorced.
I mean, he's my age, and gone through a heck of a lot more than I, and that is a lot.

It's really humbling to think what others face as routine. And don't let it get in their way. Amazing.

Pretty much.

I grew up with 0 funds and perfect health. I did none of those things, except maybe swim, if you count bobbing over slimy rocks in shallow rapids as swimming.

Pffft.  My friend with severe CP climbed El Capitan

Autoplay video, so the summary is 20000 pull-ups over 6 days to raise money for his wheelchair summer camp, Camp WAMP.  He went there as a kid, and bought it to save from bankruptcy.  The video understates his disability -- he requires a power chair.

Yea,  I don't think it's a good idea for a 9 year old to do horseback riding or paragliding.  He could get really hurt.

"Bad: Nine-year-old boy has cerebral palsy. Good: He goes Paragliding, wheelchair and all. Awesome: He also swims, goes horseback riding and plays baseball "

I can't be the only sicko who expected that headline to end with something such as "Fark: Died after being swallowed by a sinkhole"

Growing up with CP in a family that was middle class can be hard. I am lucky that my CP is not as bad as the child in the story. But even then it did limit somethings I did. My CP only effect the right side of my body. I can still walk and do everything a person without CP can just that my right side is much much weaker and somewhat limited in what I can do with it. I never let it get in my way of doing what I wanted. I can drive a car, I did search and rescue when I was a teen. I have been married and had kids. I never back down form doing all the things a dad dose with his kids such as take them to Disney and such. But I have paid for it. I am now 35 years old and now have other medical stuff to deal with. A back injury years ago on my left side never healed right cause of the added work my left side has to do to make up for the right side. Also after 35 years of over working the left side of my body it has started to take its toll on that side and I now have issue with the nerves and muscles. I still work as SSDI tells me why they do say I have medical stuff its not enough to stop me for working.(though 90% of the time I just barley make it though the work day before I just can't take it anymore. That and my doctors have told me the issues with my left side will get worse to the point I will need a caine or wheelchair at some point in my life. But all well you deal with the hand that you are delt with. Great on the kid for doing what he wants to in life.

ObTrivia: the actor who plays Walt jr. on Breaking Bad has CP in real life, although not quite as bad as the character he portrays. He had to learn to use the crutches convincingly and to slur his speech for the part.

Sounds to me that the parents are trying to figure out a way to lower their medical costs.

Terrible, I know families in the US that have lost their house because they cannot pay their medical bills.  My son has moderate-severe CP, he's 10 months old, requires a feeding tube, has moderate hearing loss in one ear.  Thankfully we are in Canada, so a lot of our medical bills are taken care of; but not all.  My son's feeding supplies cost us $500 per month, We're just starting to talk about moving too because our house is nowhere near accessible for him as he gets older.  Right now it's fine we carry him everywhere, but as he gets older and heavier, it will not work.  So all of a sudden we are talking about building a new home because accessible homes is more of a niche market, especially around here.  So what would have been an affordable family home for us we are easily adding $30-50k onto the price tag to make it accessible for him.
