Proud to Be Me


The Mission Statement: Cristina Powell brings joy, hope, courage and inspiration to patients, and their families who are facing difficult challenges, serious illness and pain. Because Cristina has journeyed through the difficulties of Cerebral Palsy, she is especially able to listen to, and then embrace, those who are suffering - with love, sensitivity and a knowing compassion. Through sharing her story, she helps others to find comfort in sharing their own. In return she lightens their hearts, enriches their lives and gives them strength to meet their own difficulties.
