Hi, my son has cerebral palsy. 

He is unable to move much and has very stiff muscles he is unable to sit up, walk, talk, feed himself and cannot see but can hear what's going on around him and recognises peoples voices. He is generally happy. He also still enjoys toddlers TV and he is now in his mid twenties. 

I was wondering what his life expectancy may be with such severe disabilities
