Raises awareness of Hemiplegia and supports members of Hemi-help.
Hemiplegia is a condition in which the limbs on one side of the body have severe weakness.
In elderly individuals, strokes are the most common cause of hemiplegia.
In children, the majority of cases of hemiplegia have no identifiable cause and occur with a frequency of about one in every thousand births.
Experts indicate that the majority of cases of hemiplegia that occur up to the age of two should be considered to be Cerebral Palsy until proven otherwise.
