Columbus Boy With Cerebral Palsy Is Inspiring People Worldwide

People often overlook the impressive perseverance displayed by those living with cerebral palsy. Yet rightfully, the gutsy performance of a Columbus boy has captivated the nation. A video of Matt Woodrum, 11, running a 400-meter race has gone viral, inspiring more than 1.2 million viewers.

Even though Woodrum has spastic cerebral palsy, he refused to give up and elected to finish the race - even when all of his classmates had long since finished. The boy's heartwarming effort is complimented by the kindness of his classmates, who began running alongside him and chanting words of encouragement. As Woodrum crossed the finish line his classmates erupted in jubilation, clearly moved by his remarkable perseverance.

Woodrum's relentless nature is not only inspiring to those with cerebral palsy, but to any person who has ever faced a sizable challenge in life. To see Woodrum's video, click here.

As persistent as they are, children with cerebral palsy need help to overcome their challenges, and financial support can bring valuable resources to the table. If you suspect that your child's cerebral palsy was caused by medical malpractice during pregnancy or during labor, contact an experienced Ohio birth injury attorney to discuss your legal options for recovering damages.
