Video Support Group: Cerebral Palsy & HIE Discussion

September 18 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm


Join us on Monday, September 18 at 12:00pm EST, for Hope for HIE’s video topic panel discussion session for families navigating cerebral palsy and HIE.


➡️ Led by Hope for HIE’s licensed social worker, Haley, families will be engaged in a space of healing and hope, no matter where their journey may take them, talking with others to build connections and support.

This event is co-hosted with 3 peer mentors from the HIE community whose children also have a cerebral palsy diagnosis:

  • Megan Carter is a union activist who is creating awareness and committed to dismantling systemic racism in the workplace and within community. She is also a children’s book author writing a book for her daughter on being a black child with cerebral palsy. She continues to advocate for children with different abilities and sharing knowledge on HIE.
  • Lynn Garrison has been a member of the Hope for HIE community for over 9 years. She is the Mom to Kyla, who is 9 years old. Kyla is a silly and very sassy 4th grader who also has Cerebral Palsy and CVI. She uses a wheelchair, gait trainer, AAC device, along with a bunch of other supports, and also thinks she is the funniest person around. Lynn says that Hope for HIE has taught her everything she knows on this journey and wants to make sure other parents feel the same way!
  • Nicole Carrillo is passionate about lending an empathetic ear and providing guidance with advocacy and inclusion. When she’s not drinking coffee, her hobbies include photography and reading.


➡️ This event will be hosted on a closed Zoom meeting experience and is scheduled for 12 p.m. EST.
