“No one has the power to shatter your dreams unless you give it to them.” Maeve Greyson

Cerebral Palsy affected my speech somewhat but I am able to communicate verbally in the “real normal world.”   Each Cerebral Palsied person is effected a bit differently in my opinion, this is because of the time limit when a person’s brain did not get enough oxygen before, during or after birth.

My Cerebral Palsy occurred during my birthing process, while the doctor was using forceps on my head during my delivery. Even today, while looking at the upper left side of my head in a mirror, that area looks a bit flatter than the right side of my head which has a more natural oval shape to my head.

In grade school, a few other school mates have told me “you talk funny” and then they might giggle at me.   Talking is more than just using our voice box, we use your cheeks, lips, tongue, jaws and our lungs to speak loudly and clearly. With Cerebral Palsy (CP) all of these muscles and functions are affecting my face with spastic tension.

Drooling was another of my young childhood symptoms, chewing gums helped me overcome my weakness in swallowing, in learning to swallow properly.

Breathing for me, was a life threatening problem as a new born and infant. As a premature baby weighing three pounds, three ounces, I would just stop breathing.   My mother told me years later, in order to keep me breathing she had to, “spank me” or "tickle me" to keep me alive.

Another early pre-school breathing exercise I did was learning to yell. other than crying. This exercise was to help increase my lung capacity to breathe deeper and speak louder. Mother would be in the kitchen with the radio on and I was in the family room of our big farm house, two big rooms away from the kitchen playing on the floor. At first, mother could hear me quite easily from where I was two rooms away. Until I heard rather quickly, mother turned up the volume on the radio. Then she would look at me from around the corner and say, “I can’t hear you.”

With many of the C.P. children another symptom is the “droopy head” syndrome, I could not hold my head up straight.   We worked on this “droopy head’ syndrome a good long while also, maybe, months and months. Often I would be setting in the kitchen table chair as steady and straight as I possibly could. Trying to keep my head up level and straight by balancing a book on my head and not have the book tumble off my head, crashing to the floor.

Yet again, the ole radio played a part with this exercise also, I had to balance the book on my head until the completion of the song on the radio. Then eventually, I was balancing two books on my head at the same time, learning to hold my head up straight and also to watch where I was going.

In high school, after using my shoulders, arms, crutches and leg braces to walk with, over ten years my neck was 16 ½ inches around, much larger than average necks of my age, the collar button could not be buttoned to wear neck ties.

Mom never let me use the phrase, "I can't" even when she know I could not do certain tasks.  Mom's replies to my "I can't" was always, "Can't never did anything" or "Try again, keep trying" and "You never know until you try."

Those are just a few experiences in my life:

So you are not confused there are three types of CrowdFunding:


Many people are racing to CrowdFunding from around the world.

Equity Crowdfunding for Business:

Realestate falls into this category and this is being regulated by the SEC. example:

Reward based CrowdFunding:

In return for backing a project, backers receive different rewards depending on the amount of funding they commit (defined by the business or entrepreneur behind the project)  Example:

Donation based Crowdfunding:

It enables individuals to directly share their money with causes and projects that they feel strongly about and thereby empower others to create impact. Example:
