Chat with the Cerebral Palsy Swagger team – Hunter & Braden Gandee

From Friday, June 5 through Sunday, June 7, 15-year old Hunter Gandee will carry his 8 year old brother, Braden, who has Cerebral Palsy, on a 57-mile journey to bring awareness to the physical and mental challenges faced by those affected by CP.  Their goal is to help the world see the need for better treatment options, smarter equipment, and more aggressive progress towards creating a truly accessible world for individuals with disabilities.

Join us for a live Q&A web chat with Hunter, Braden, their mom, Danielle, and Dr. Edward Hurvitz, Chairman of the Department of Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation at University of Michigan C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital.

From cerebral palsy treatment and advances in CP research to accessible playgrounds and the highs and lows of a 57-mile trek with your brother strapped to your back – we’re looking forward to a great conversation with the inspirational Gandee family and Dr. Hurvitz.
