Hello everybody! My name is Jack, I'm 13 years old and in a wheelchair. I have Cerebral Palsy and sometimes I really hate it! I want this blog to be a place where I can write down my thoughts or share a joke with all of you. I promise it will get more interesting!!!
I have the coolest thing! It is called an Eco2 from PRC. It is a communication device and a computer and it uses eye gaze technology which means I can just look at letters or icons and it types for me! I can talk but I am sometimes hard to understand.
For a while I've been thinking about how hard CP is. My parents have been always right there for me. One of the reasons my CP is hard is because I am not allowed to play on regular sports teams with my friends. So I help out with teams sometimes but it isn't the same. This year I played baseball on a challenger league team for kids with special needs. That was better than nothing but I would have rather been on a regular team with my friends. I want to find a basketball team. Maybe Derrick Rose could borrow my wheelchair while he recovers! I play sports with my friends sometimes but it's been a long time.
So to sum up about me I am the biggest sports fan in the world (especially Chicago Bulls, Bears, Cubs, Blackhawks). Having CP is hard but I still have to live through it. Every week I will plan on posting something. I hope it will help people just like me with CP realize they're not alone!
