Linlithgow and East Falkirk MP supports Cerebral Palsy Awareness Day
On Cerebral Palsy Awareness Day last Thursday, Martyn Day MP showed his support for people with cerebral palsy and their families in Scotland by aiming to raise awareness of the condition.
Mr Day (SNP) said: “Cerebral palsy is the name for a group of lifelong conditions that affect movement and co-ordination. It's caused by a problem with the brain that develops before, during or soon after birth.
“It is the most common physical disability in children. Around 1 in 500 births will result in a diagnosis of Cerebral Palsy and in Scotland around 150 children are diagnosed each year.
“People with cerebral palsy and their families can find support and information by contacting Cerebral Palsy Scotland.”
