My name is Lauren. I am currently 27 years old and I have Cerebral Palsy.
Imagine yourself sitting in a wheelchair in front of a table with a plate of food. Your stomach growling so lout everyone could hear. You want so desperately to pick up that fork and feed yourself and when you try your arm moves straight up instead of forward and you fight with all your being to move your arms towards the table and grasp that fork, but you can't. You just want to sink your teeth into that food sitting on the plate. Now also imagine having to wait of someone to come over and pick up that fork, place the food on it, test it so it's not too hot, and then place it in your mouth. That is what it is like for me, just one part of my day. Everyday.
