Christina is Mom to Devin who was born prematurely and diagnosed with cerebral palsy at 11 months old, due to a grade II brain bleed at time of birth. He was diagnosed with spastic diplegia cerebral palsy and has a history of absent seizures. Today, Devin is an active boy who is a straight ‘A’ student, loves music, video games and anything with wheels that goes fast.

Christina is an active advocate in the CP community, volunteering with CP NOW, founded by Michele Shusterman, on The Cerebral Palsy Tool-Kit: From Diagnosis to Understanding. She hopes to make an impact changing the way CP is diagnosed, treated and how CP is thought of by the general public.
