About Easter Seals UCP of North Carolina and Virginia
My 27-year-old son had significant brain issues before birth. He had at least one stroke and a hole in one of the veins that runs directly beneath the brain. As a result, not only did a significant portion of his brain die as a result of the aneurysm, but the hole was too small to be repaired until he was 9 months old (severely restricting blood flow, and oxygen, to the brain). Robbie has cerebral palsy, intellectual disabilities, and a seizure disorder (thankfully "cured" by a hemispherectomy). Robbie is in a motorized wheelchair and needs assistance for all activities of daily living. United Cerebral Palsy came into our lives when Robbie was three--he attended the Child Development Center, which provided not only education but therapies, field trips, laughter, and love. It prepared him for public school so that he could attend with typically developing kids. Later, UCP provided respite workers and assistants for after-school care. UCP merged with Easter Seals and became Easter Seals UCP of NC and Va. The agency provided a one-on-one assistant for Robbie, who came to our house 3-4 days a week. Lee took Robbie out on trips, sporting events, and kept Robbie overnight occasionally. ESUCP provided supported employment as well. After Robbie graduated from high school, I became his full-time caregiver, with respite help. And in 2011, ESUCP opened a 2-man group home in which Robbie could live as independently as possible. He has 24-hour care and is watched over by devoted people who do their jobs for love, clearly not money. This organization is near and dear to our family but never has enough money to run all of its programs. It provides services to a broad array of individuals with CP, autism, mental health issues, and a host of other disabilities. Almost every penny of all donations goes back into the organization. It is well worth consideration....
