Adam’s Daily Life

We all should be able to choose what is best for us!

My name is Adam and I was born with cerebral palsy (CP). The umbilical cord was wrapped around my neck when I was born and I stayed in an incubator for three months struggling to survive. I was born premature, I weighed only one pound. Doctors said I wouldn't make it past age one but here I am today, still alive and living with a dream. I see my friends walking and I dream of just taking one step.

The cost of living with CP is very difficult. I get government assistance, but I can barely afford to live on what they are giving me because the cost of living in this economy has increased tremendously. I am enrolled in an independent living program but they are not allowed to assist me financially, that is why I'm asking for your help*. I also get health insurance but that has decreased tremendously as well. I get a certain amount of supplies from my medical insurance but sometimes I go over. That is why I have some of these pictures on the website so in case somebody would like to make a donation they have the option to. I take public transportation to get around; access paratransit is also a way that I get around. So what I am planning to do is to raise enough money to start an organization for people like me so they won't have to suffer in this economy.

What I am asking from you is to lend a helping hand. It's like that movie, Pay it Forward, where you help one person and then that person will help the next person and so on and so forth. I believe helping others is the right thing to do. So let's change the world and make it a better place. I thank you in advance for taking the time to read this. I also thank you from the bottom of my heart.
