This Thursdays, March 25


Thursday, March 25th, my new book Living Strong with Cerebral Palsy: The True Story of Amanda Forry-Fino is released. Living Strong with CP was a lot of work to write, so I’m very excited to get it out there. which I began writing on the day following my 27th birthday, and which will be published 13 days before my 31st birthday.

NOTE Living Strong with Cerebral Palsy book is 18+ includes dark issues and adult language and is not suitable for children or minors.

Although some chapters of the book have been challenging for me to write, somehow I managed it. So many people have asked me to write my life and how I live with my Cerebral Palsy, overcoming it. To me, having CP I have to overcome it each day. Writing it was very challenging for me because I knew I never wanted to return to what I had experienced in my past. Essentially, I was motivated to write it because I would like for other people to look at people with disabilities differently. In support of National Cerebral Palsy Awareness Day, I gave away book copies to people who ordered shirts from #cpdreamteam. It bothers me that most of the #cpdreamteam shits were purchased by parents for their children. That’s unfair since my book contains language and content that children or minors might not understand. Leading me to adapt my book to be family-friendly. Having revised the early memories into a revised opening and climax within a few days, the book eventually came into its own, Cerebral Palsy Gal.

March is CP Awareness Month


“She means to take on the world, make it a better place. And if that means doing it from a different perspective, then – by God – that is what she will do.” -Sean Mearns Founder/Administrator at Care for Rares

CP Fact #6: With the appropriate services and support, children and adults with CP can stay well, active, and a part of the community.
Amanda is not only an active part of her community, but is making strides to educate the world! She is the author of the book “Living Strong with Cerebral Palsy,” a novel showing the struggles of a young woman finding her voice and building her self esteem while facing the struggles – and celebrating the victories – of cerebral palsy. Amanda has also adapted the book into a book for young children, so that they can enjoy it, as well. Partnering with the group CP Dream Team, Amanda gave away eBook copies of her book to anyone who ordered a shirt from them for the 2021 National Cerebral Palsy Awareness Day. Amanda has a passion for helping others, and her desire is to advocate for all individuals with severe disabilities.

March 25 National Cerebral Palsy Awareness Day, I have two books set to be released separately!


Living Strong With Cerebral Palsy: The True Story of Amanda Forry-Fino is the title of my memoir to be published this month, March 25.  Living Strong with Cerebral Palsy is both inspirational and heartwarming, representing the struggles and victories of a young woman to discover her voice and develop her self-esteem to advocate for all people with severe disabilities.

The month before the launch of Living Strong With Cerebral Palsy: Amanda Forry-Fino’s True Story; In support of National Cerebral Palsy Awareness Day, I gave away book copies to people who ordered shirts from #cpdreamteam.  It bothers me that most of the #cpdreamteam shits were purchased by parents for their children. That’s unfair since my book contains language and content that children or minors might not understand. Leading me to adapt my book to be family-friendly. Having revised the early memories into a revised opening and climax within a few days, the book eventually came into its own, Cerebral Palsy Gal.

Merry Christmas 2020 from CP Gal


Wishing Everyone a Merry Christmas and Seasons Greetings.

At this time, we Christians extend our hand in friendship to all, no matter your beliefs or the lack thereof. Unfortunately, we have far too much hatred, jealousy, political agendas, and not enough better angels to extend our goodwill to all. We truly need each other so much more “each and every day.” This Virus has placed a tremendous burden on us all; we suffer. Agonize, “how are we going to make it,” but we will endure and persevere. As I said, we need each other, and can you imagine that loss and being all alone with no one else.

Covid19 and Thanksgiving


How do we give thanks after the year we all have?”

Photo by Daria Shevtsova on Pexels.com

Yesterday, I woke, and it dawns on me that next Thursday is Thanksgiving Day. “WOW, It’s here, what am I thankful for?” I did do a big Thankful, giving thanks blog one year ago yet this year’s message will have a defend outlook than just a year ago.

One of my new pal’s had asked me ‘How are you and coping with Covid19 restrictions?’ I have to think of all of the hardship that I have endeared thou this year while a tear runs out of my eyes. It’s been VERY HARD for me, coping with Covid19 restrictions, and the matter’s of 2020 all year long.

Now we ALL as a whole country Covid19 Thanksgiving Restrictions. Some of the rules that are madding and crazy, I don’t remember Easter and the 4th of July being out of had like having cop’s over if you host a Thanksgiving Dinner that had only ten people, or wearing a mask in your home. The question here… how does one eat turkey while wearing a mask? I hear so many friends told me they all have to FACE-TIME their loved ones over the holidays. I have to cry seeing a few new bittersweet TV Christmas commercials. It’s just a very sad holiday.

My thanksgiving wish to you is that… I hope this is a “One-time holiday deal” and may next year we would be back to normal or something that we were all familiar with, yet not the covid19 restrictions of the year, 2020.
