I would like to apologize to all of you who have been sending email to me and have not yet received a response to your message. Over the past few months my mailbox has been overflowing with SPAM and even with filers in place some legit messages do slip though the cracks and get filtered as SPAM. As a measure to combat this problem I would like to ask all of you to include the letters "CPC" in the subject of your message. This will allow me to better filter messages that are honest questions and comments you may have. Also note that the site mailbox will no longer accept attachments. Any attachment you send will filter your mail as JUNK. I apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, but I feel it is necessary in order to maintain the stability of the website. (This change does not affect messages sent though the miscellaneous forms thought the website.)

Hello there. My name is JessePaul and this is Cerebral Palsy Connection. CPC exists to allow those with CP to communicate with each other. Communication is very important in coping with the disability. All to often those with CP (or any other disability) feel isolated and alone. Communication is just as much a healing method as therapy or medication used by doctors. CPC soul existence is to bridge the gap and tries to help people realize they are not alone in the world in everything that must be dealt with CP.
