Hi, my name is daresbury1978!

Hello! I am an 84 year old disabled man. I was a casualty of the World War 2 bombing raids. I have many friends who have cerebral palsy and I have been doing my best to support them for over 40 years as their "friend, enabler and advocate". I look forward to being able to increase my understanding about disability experience and hope that I will be able to offer something worthwhile to this on-line community.
