Manny is a 4 year old boy with Cerebral Palsy. He cannot speak or walk, but, he can dream. In his mind he is not “broken.” Manny sees daily activities very differently than we do. He does not let his disability cloud his ability to create an exciting and positive version of life in his own mind. That is his super power.
Holly wrote Manny’s Mission: The Adventures of a Cerbral Palsy Superhero in a hospital room, watching her son sleep after a major surgery. Most days she remains strangely optimistic, even through the hardest points in her life. On January 22, 2012, her superhero was born. Baby Manny sustained total brain damage at birth and was diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy and Epilepsy. Defying all odds, her son lovingly earned the name “Super Manny.” Holly and her two daughters, Skyler and Ariana, were destined to change the way people would view disabilities forever. Today, she is still able to live a fun and balanced life with her family and friends. She enjoys spending too much time at the gym, directing 5k runs, drinking wine with the wittiest name brands, and pushing the limits wherever she can! Holly and her family continue to show everyone that the only true disability is a bad attitude.
