The family and friends of Breanna Beale are uniting to raise funds needed for therapy and equipment due to cerebral palsy.

We know that reaching this goal will help get Breanna the needed therapy and equipment.

Breanna has cerebral palsy. Cerebral palsy is a disorder caused by damage to the brain during pregnancy, delivery or shortly after birth. It is often accompanied by seziures, hearing loss, difficulty speaking, blindness, lack of co-ordination and/or mental retardation. About 40% are caused by a lack of oxygen (hypoxia), and the remaining causes are unknown.

Breanna cannot use her right arm. Bre has a VP shunt due to hydrocephalus which has caused more brain damage. Breanna is legally blind and has hearing loss in right ear. Regular stretching is keeping Breanna from having deformites associated with cerebral palsy and she cannot speak. The school system says she is mentally retarded but I believe she understands. Any donation would be a blessing. We are financially unable to provide any therapy or equipment on our own, Bre's dad works full time, and as her mother I have had no other option but to stay home because Breanna requires constant medical attention.

Bre's life will be filled with standing frames, wheelchairs, bath chairs, potty chairs, special beds, physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy, visual aides for communication, communication devices for her to interact with the community, breathing euipment, home modificaiton, vehicle modifications, etc. every aspect of her life will be modified.

We are asking you to unite with us so Breanna can get the needed medical support to overcome issues that arise from cerebral palsy.
