faces of cp


Cerebral Palsy Alliance Research Foundation (CPARF) is thrilled to announce our new Faces of CP campaign — an ongoing curation of photos and stories of people with cerebral palsy. More than 18 million people worldwide have CP, which means there are 18 million stories to share. And we aim to share as many of them as possible. Together, we’ll raise awareness and we’ll show the personal side of what it’s like to live with CP.

CPARF's mission is to fund research to create improved treatments, discover preventions, and, ultimately, a cure for CP. Three of our focused research areas are stem cell therapy, chronic pain prevention and management, and assistive technology, including thought-to-speech technology.

We invite you to share your story. Please make sure to send a signed copy of our Photo Release Form to Sarah Agopian. If you’re under the age of 18, please have a parent or guardian sign on your behalf.

If you have any questions, please contact Sarah Agopian. Thanks for your participation and for sharing your story and creating a fuller picture of what living with CP is like.
