AnonymooseFarker: Dubya's_Coke_Dealer: I wonder what CP is like for families that aren't rich.

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.


have you considered SID-s?

Meanwhile, growing up in the UK I lived down the block from a kid with CP, and he was completely taken care of by the NHS. But, you know, socialism.

I live in Canada, I guess you could call it socialism light.  We make too much money to qualify for a lot of the programs that would help support him.  Thankfully we have our provincial health care that pays the bulk of it, and our private insurance picks up the rest.
