Episode 57: Day-to-Day Life with Cerebral Palsy
Guest: Katrina Moline, Hand to Hold Operations Director & NICU Mom
It’s one thing to receive a diagnosis and a whole other to live it. NICU mom Katrina Moline shares how cerebral palsy has, and has not, affected their daily life.
In this episode, we chat about:
- What is Cerebral Palsy (CP)?
- For children/babies who have CP what are some of the symptoms, developmental challenges?
- When you learned of the diagnosis, what did you do?
- How has CP affected your daily family life? What has been the hardest adjustment?
- How have you grown in the last 13 years since Bryce was diagnosed?
- What’s your favorite service that Hand to Hold offers parents and caregivers?
- What’s your best advice to a mom, dad or caregiver whose child has just received a CP diagnosis?
