CBS News recently visited GPNY to cover a story on 13-year-old Marni Graves. Despite having cerebral palsy she doesn’t let her disorder define her as she races past the competition on GPNY’s Track.
A New York teenager with cerebral palsy is living proof that a disorder doesn’t define you.
Cerebral palsy is one of the most common childhood disorders in the United States; around 10,000 babies are born each year with CP. The disorder affects the ability to move and maintain balance and posture.
CBS New York’s Otis Livingston recently met a young lady who is not letting CP slow her down. In fact, with the help of her family and her school, she is whizzing past expectations, literally.
