Help Conner Move Through the World

Help Conner Move Through the World
Posted on Wed 15 Feb 2023

At almost seven years old, Conner loves music and his favorites include Bob Dylan and the Grateful Dead! So it’s no surprise that his favorite thing to do is play the guitar, which is a hidden way for him to get in some occupational therapy. A true rock star, Conner was born at just 24 weeks, weighing only 1 lb., 6 oz., and he spent more than six months in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU).

His mom, Jenny, shared that he’s already overcome many obstacles, “and from the beginning, technology has played a vital role in Conner’s life — from literal life-saving technology in the NICU to therapeutic devices like his Trexo Robotics gait trainer. And I know that technology being developed right now will help him in the not-so-distant future.”

From the NICU-based research we fund to the innovative technology we support through our disability tech startup accelerator, Cerebral Palsy Alliance Research Foundation is at the forefront.

Donate today to support life-saving cerebral palsy research and life-changing disability technology so that Conner and everyone with cerebral palsy can live their lives to the fullest.

Thanks for giving back and shaping lives with us,

The CPARF Team
