Lower Lafourche CP Telethon this weekend

Lower Lafourche CP Telethon this weekend

Cerebral palsy is the most prevalent life long disability in the United States today.

It can impair the ability to walk, talk, to see, hear, to move, to communicate, to learn … and for the individual with one or more of these impairments it means a life filled with barriers, to leading or securing a “normal” existence.

People with cerebral palsy can be helped and Cerebral Palsy of Louisiana is the voluntary agency that helps them … with the purchase of wheelchairs, walkers, braces, communication devices, prescription shoes, assistance with therapy and much more.

The Lower Lafourche Cerebral Palsy of LA Telethon will be held this Saturday, August 27, from 12-noon to 10 p.m., and on Sunday, August 28, from 12-noon to 6 p.m. at the Cut Off Youth Center.

The event will be televised on Vision Communications, Channel 5.

Come to the Telethon this weekend, drop a $25 donation in the fish bowl and get an “I Helped” t-shirt.

The poster representative this year is Greyson Gros, of Larose. Greyson is the son of Jessica and Keria Gros. He enjoys outside activities, and listening to music.

Your generous telethon pledge last year helped to continue the work in servicing the needs of people with cerebral palsy. Won’t you consider helping this year with a generous donation to Cerebral Palsy of Louisiana?
