Statistics

Cerebral Palsy affects:

  • 1 in 323 children in the US
  • 10,000 babies per year
  • 800,000 American children and adults
  • 17,000,000 people worldwide

The high cost of living with Cerebral Palsy:

  • The average lifetime cost for just one person with CP is estimated to be $1.5 million above and beyond the cost of living for an average U.S. citizen.
  • It is estimated that the lifetime care and medical costs for all people with CP, who were born in the year 2000 alone, will total more than $13.5 billion.

With research and development of better treatments, these costs could be reduced.
