School is going well!

Sorry about the long wait for a new post. I've been pummeled with homework, especially writing.

Guess what Derrick Rose did? I posted something on his Facebook page and he replied to it the next day! I said "I believe that you will get back to 100%. I use a wheelchair all the time because I have Cerebral Palsy and you inspire me! I'm 13 and you are my hero." Derrick commented, "Thanks Jack, appreciate the support... Stay inspired and keep working hard!"

I have been feeling so good lately. I haven't been so down about having CP. I am helping with my school's football team (GO HURRICANES!) and we are 4-0-1. My friends on the team make me feel that I'm part of the team and the coaches have actually let me call a play in a game.

I wasn't ready for school to start but now I'm working really hard and getting good grades. I also get to see my friends more which is great. My teachers are the best. I feel like having CP doesn't matter at school.

World Cerebral Palsy Day!

        I apologize that it took so long to write this post.  My teachers gave me a ton of homework. Anyway, today is World Cerebral Palsy Day.  If you are on a social network post something about Cerebral Palsy.  You can also donate to United Cerebral Palsy if you want to. Another blogger is going to make a montage and asked me to be in it! Check it out!
          I hate it when I can not do things that my friends can do. My goal is to be as independent as my friends are. Sometimes I feel left out when I don’t get invited to birthday parties. I think they are too afraid. I have a manual chair that can get on stairs. One of my parents can come if I need something. My friend Tyson invited me to his party and it meant a lot to me. My point is that I’m just a regular teenager.  I love to party as much as other teens.  Bailey, my puppy is doing great. Sometimes she gets puppy rage. She can be so sweet and is already growing a ton! Have a wonderful week!
