New Superhero with CP Catches Stan Lee’s Attention

United Cerebral Palsy (UCP) recently spoke with Aaron D’Errico, a young man full of ideas to change the world for people with disabilities. Some of his ideas came together in the form of a comic book superhero named “Ammon” – a semi-autobiographical representation of himself. D’Errico is the son of pro soccer player David D’Errico and has cerebral palsy. When he was just 11 years old he won the OMSI “Science of Superheroes” drawing contest and has been working to bring Ammon to life as a narrated motion comic to encourage reading among young people.  Click HERE to learn more in UCP’s Voices of UCP blog!
