Local News

LA CROSSE/EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (WLAX/WEUX) – A local cerebral palsy warrior visited businesses and clinics “going green” to raise awareness for World Cerebral Palsy Day in his honor.

Two and a half year old Al, doled out fist pumps to his friends and doctors to thank them for supporting him. Aj’s family is fundraising for an intensive therapy he can only receive in California.

Aj’s mom says the celebration and love from the community is truly humbling.

“Cerebral palsy is a spectrum just like any other neurological disorder and so it could be nonverbal, wheelchair rode individuals or it could mean like Aj who is starting to learn how to walk with a walker and who’s learning words on a daily basis, with the right amount of therapy and the right providers and the right support system, we can really go far,” said Aj’s mom.
