Never Accept No With Cerebral Palsy (Guest Post)

Growing up with Cerebral Palsy was no different than any other kid, expected that I walked a little different than my friends. I was always very ambitious to do anything that I wanted and it was hard for the people around me to say no to me because I wanted to do something that everyone else was doing, like playing a sport or riding a bike, let me tell you when I learned to ride a bike it was hard for my parents to get me off of it, I loved riding my bike.

But there were things like playing sports for my school that the school wouldn't let me participate in and I didn't know too much about the reason, until one day in 4th grade we were in gym class and we were learning the fundamentals of basketball and I wanted to play so the teacher didn't know what to do. So she sat me on the sideline to watch and lets just say I wasn't a happy camper. So I went home and told my mom after school I wasn't allowed to play basketball today in gym and my mom being the nicest lady I know told me I will go and talk with the school tomorrow, so the next gym class I went and sat on the sideline like I normally do during gym, but that day was a bit different. My gym teacher let me participate and from that day forward I was able to participate in any and all basketball teams and seasons when I got into 5th grade.

I was the 8th grade basketball team captain and I was really honored to have that roll with all my friends. So the moral of the story is and I am talking from experience that when you are told you cant remember don’t let the answer NO get in the way of something great, because you can and all of us just have to prove it sometimes.
