Two years, I had a shock when I learned that my uncle's wife gave birth to a baby with a cerebral palsy. It is characterized by abnormal muscle tone, reflexes, or motor development and coordinator. The cause is largely due to lacking of oxygen in pregnancy, birth trauma, central nervous systems infection, water in the brain or certain infections in the mother during and before birth. It's quite sad because if a baby has a cerebral palsy, he cannot survive long. I have read once that there is no cure for CP patients... but of course, there are therapies that can help the patient function and live more effectively. Sad to say that only people who have money can do this. The poor CP patients are left to die early.
