What a Difference a Voice Can Make (article by Susie Rodde)

Family & Friends

My name’s Brit and I’m contacting you on behalf of Pannone, the medical negligence solicitors. My client recently produced a very interesting video in which a couple describe the impact cerebral palsy can have on a family, and how Pannone's hard work and support can help improve quality of life for those affected:

I thought this video might make a useful additional resource to the ‘Links & Resources’ section of your website, and I would like to invite you to add a link to it, if you think it will be interesting for your visitors?

My 15-year-old Granddaughter Lauren Walier has Cerebral Palsy. On 10/18/13 she spoke at The American Academy of Cerebral Palsy and Developmental Medicine, a global audience of doctors, researchers, clinicians, therapists, etc. in Milwaukee, WI. Please be patient as she is very emotional and nervous getting started.

Please help Lauren by forwarding this to every email address you have. Lauren is a very courageously starting a crusade to help people less fortunate that she is by raising funds and awareness for cerebral palsy research and therapy. In May through August she rasied over $7000 for her cause. Please help us make Lauren's foundation, Make Lemon Aide for Cerebral Palsy and Lauren a major fundraiser for CP. Every penny Lauren raises goes to her cause. Listen to her dreams and please support them to come true.

Recruiting adults with CP to participate.

Neurologists, internists and physical therapists at Rancho Los Amigos National Rehabilitation Center are recruiting adults with CP to try a medication which increases nerve conduction velocity, and has been shown to increase strength and decrease fatigue in people with spinal injury and multiple sclerosis.

The medication has not been tried previously in people with Cerebral Palsy, but based on results in other conditions we believe it may be helpful for people with CP. We need to test

1. safety

2.effectiveness in adults who are able to walk. (after these preliminary trials we hope it will be useful for all ages and all "types" of CP). This is what will be involved:3 days at Rancho Los Amigos (in Downey California); if housing is needed we will provide this, as well as meals, travel costs and compensation for time spent).

The first day basic medical tests (physical examination, blood tests), neurologic examination, gait analysis

Day 2 medication, blood tests, gait analysis and repeat neuro exam Day 3 medication, blood tests, gait analysis, repeat neuro exam.

On Days 2 and 3, the evaluating doctors and therapists and you the person taking the medication will not know whether you are taking active medicine or placebo, but one day will be medication and the other day placebo.

The Doctors involved are Dr. Mindy Aisen (neurology), Dr. Yaga Szlachcic (internal medicine) and Dr. Susan Shaw (neurology). To be eligible for the study: diagnosis of CP, able to walk, no history of seizures, age 21-55 years.

(for information about the trial they should email me at or phone 562-401-7161)

The song you are about to listen to is from a Las Vegas Diamond Rio concert. They received an immediate, resounding standing ovation, and continue to do so every time they perform it! Sadly, major radio stations wouldn't play it because it was considered "politically incorrect." Consequently, the song was never released to the public.

My name is Susie Rodde. I'm 60 years young. Althogh, Ivy past on loving memories of her live on In my heart.. This page is about me and my story. At the bottom of the page you'll find links to several additional pages. Some are used as resources by those with CP or other disabilities, parents of children with CP, students, and professionals such as Doctors, therapists, and teachers. Others simply serve as a way to connect with one another. Isn't that what the internet and world wide web are all about?

Please take time to explore these other pages and the instructive and fun things they contain. Also, if you're so inclined, please sign my guestbook at the bottom of any of the pages and let me know what you think and how you feel. If you'd like a personal response to a particular question or problem I might be able to help you with, simply use one of the email links and I'll get back to you as soon as I can, depending on what kind of mood my computer happens to be in at the moment!

Something I am very proud of is winning the Sandra Jensen Award. The Award is given every year sponsored by People First of California and co sponsored and awarded by the president of Protection & Advocacy Inc., the president at that time was Nancy Lim-Yee.

"How ABs See Gimps" - Ruth C. Webb, Ph.D.

'How ABs See Gimps' examines "four mechanisms of perception" which sometimes occur at first sight of a severely disabled person. Using short stories, the book explores tendencies of physically normal strangers to reject physically handicapped persons, or gimps as they often refer to each other. The book is designed to help parents and family members to understand the dynamics involved in relating to handicapped children and adults. The book is also intended to assist caring people and professionals-teachers, mental health experts, minister, physicians--to understand negative reactions to handicapped persons by the general public. The stories portray interactions between able-bodied (ABs) and physically disabled people (gimps) in various settings. The characters and situations are drawn from incidents occurring in relationships between the handicapped, the people they love, the people who love them, as well as the casual passerby.

The author, Ruth C. Webb, holds a Ph.D. in Guidance and Counseling
from the University of Illinois and lives in Grinnell, Iowa. She writes from her personal experience with Cerebral Palsy.

In Loving Memory Of Ivy

susie and ivyTHE RAINBOW BRIDGE There is a bridge connecting Heaven and Earth. It is called the Rainbow Bridge because of its many colors. Just this side of the Rainbow Bridge there is a land of meadows, hills and valleys with lush green grass.When cherished pet passes away, they go to this place.There is always food ,water and sunshine and everyone is warm and comfortable.all the animals who have been ill and old and restored to health and vigor.Those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again,just as we remember them in days gone by.They play all day with each other. There is only one small thing missing.They are not with their special person who loved them on Earth and had to be left behind.So they run and play until the days comes when one suddenly stops and looks off into the distance.Their bright eyes staring! The nose twitches! The ears are up ! Their eager body begins to quiver ! Suddenly they begin to run from the group,flying over the green grass,their legs carrying them faster and faster ... You have been spotted ! And when you and your special friend meet,you cling together in joyous reunion.Your face is kissed again and again ,your hands caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the adoring eyes of your trusting pet,so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart. Then you cross the Rainbow Bridge together ,never again to be separated..
