When Cerebral Palsy (CP) Gives You Lemons

Keith Boyd, a boy with cerebral palsy (CP), is unable to talk, walk, or use his hands, but CP won’t stop him from communicating and accomplishing all the things that are important to him. To engage with others, he uses a special computer, called a Tobii, which is operated by eye movement. Signals from Keith’s eyes tell the computer what he wants to say, and then the computer relays the message aloud or into typed text. Keith can also control the radio, television and room temperature with the Tobii. It has benefited him so much that he is determined to raise money to ensure that more kids can have one.

To raise money, Keith opened 10 lemonade stands around the Tulsa, Oklahoma area, so far raising $100,000 of his $250,000 goal. He plans to donate the money raised by Keith’s Ice Cold Lemonade Stand to his former special needs school, The Little Light House, so they can purchase more assistive technology for children like him.

Inspired by Keith’s desire to help others, Chick-fil-A is donating all the lemonade. Thrive15, an online education and entertainment company, made a short movie about Keith’s story and his life with cerebral palsy.

In Keith’s own words: “I have a dream. I have a plan. I have a purpose. What’s stopping you?”

A “birth injury” is any type of harm to a baby that occurs just before, during, or after birth, and may be a result of medical negligence or malpractice. While some children with birth injuries make a complete recovery, others develop disabilities such as cerebral palsy. A birth injury case settlement could cover lifelong treatment, care, and other necessary resources for the child.
