Check out this blog about business cards by Harry, from Doncaster, who has cerebral palsy. We hope it will give people an idea about how to make their own versions that are individual to their own condition if they feel this would be useful too.

Would like some info on aging and cerebral palsy. What to expect. I'm 35 and very active. Ran my first half marathon in August in 2 hrs.
I sent an email to Scope about this a couple of weeks ago and posted about this subject in the CP forum but as I haven't received any kind of reply or acknowledgment, I've posted a link here.
Hi, I'm just wondering if anyone could give me some information and advice really. I was diagnosed with mild CP about 3 weeks ago, bit surprising as I am 42!
