This Girl Doesn’t Let Cerebral Palsy Stop Her From Being A Thrill Seeker!

a girl with cerebral palsy named abby smiling as she and her dad ride a roller coaster in disneyland

Just because Abby McNamara has cerebral palsy doesn’t mean she can’t be a thrill seeker. In fact, she absolutely adores the rush that comes from riding on a roller coaster!

It can be difficult to find amusement parks that accommodate someone like Abby who can’t walk or talk, but they’ve found that Disneyland is an exception. This is especially good for the McNamara family who just so happen to live nearby in California!

Because the joy that Abby feels when riding a coaster is so contagious, her mom, Michelle, decided to share a clip from a recent visit. In it, Abby’s dad holds onto her tight as the ride starts to slowly move. Before they know it, their speed picks up, and this adorable girl can’t help but smile!

Watch their adventure below and don’t forget to share.
