I would like to nominate my eldest daughter Adiba Nisa for the hero of the day award. She deserves to get awarded as a hero because she is s miracle girl n a very strong fighter from the day she was born. She was born around 34 to 36 weeks at birth weight of 1.20kg and since then she has battled a lot of obstacles in her life. She used to have so many hospital trips al around the country about 3 to 4 times for check ups physio CT scan blood tests x rays n many more n to mention long stays at hospital wen she always used to catch viruses and infections. Now she is 9 years old n both my husband n I together with our families n friends are very proud of her. She was diagnosed with cerebral palsy n communicative hydrocaphlas with bilateral tenotomy in both ankles. She still can't sit, stand or walk on her own but she has progressed to eating big pieces with her hand n she can understand everything very well. She has a very infectious smile n anyone can laugh and forget their sadness when she laughs. She is our special gift and she means evrything to us.

This is our son Alfredo. He is almost 2 and has quad spastic cerebral palsy. This is his first Giants game. I'm so proud of how well he did. I had prepared for a lot of situations and he didn't have one issue. But better to over pack then need something you forgot, yea I felt like one of those crazy over protective mom's with 3 bags of stuff. lol.

In the News - Basking Ridge youth qualifies for National Junior Disability Championships

"Lightning Wheels, the sports organization for New Jersey athletes with disabilities, has played a big part in developing that attitude. It has allowed him to feel like he’s part of a larger community, Stephanie says. She points out that as great as the Mount Prospect school has been in embracing Aidan, he was still the only kid in school using a walker or using crutches to get around. With Lightning Wheels he is around other kids with similar disabilities.": http://cpfn.us/1Jbz1cL

This is my son Jerome he is going to be 3, August 1st. He was born at 26 weeks. He has mild cp that effects his legs. But it won't stop him he's always smiling and happy. He brings so much joy and laughter to our family. They give medical term as to why he was born so early, but my wife and I both know he took the place of my father who"s birthday was also August 1st.
