STATE OF DELAWARE
WHEREAS, the crippling disorder known as Cerebral Palsy has handicapped thousands of children and adults in our nation, causing them untold pain and bringing anguish to those close to them; and
WHEREAS, no general preventative or cure for this condition has been found, although great strides have been made in the field of research, education and training; and
WHEREAS, it is clear that existing facilities for the care, treatment and guidance of the cerebral palsied must be continually expanded in order to give the best possible attention and service to those afflicted; and
WHEREAS, United Cerebral Palsy of Delaware, Inc., has been making a great contribution in this field, enabling the establishment of therapy units and summer camps, and providing other material resources in order to give all possible assistance to these victims; and
WHEREAS, a concerted effort will be made during the month of May, 1959, through education and by conducting a financial campaign in behalf of this work; now
THEREFORE, I, J. CALEB BOGGS, Governor of the State of Delaware, do hereby designate the month of May, 1959, as
CEREBRAL PALSY MONTH
in Delaware. During this period, I hope that all of our citizens will try to learn of the fine work which has been accomplished by United Cerebral Palsy, and that every assistance will be forthcoming to assist them in carrying on in this important field.
IN WITNESS, WHEREOF, I, J. Caleb Boggs, Governor of the State of Delaware, have hereunto set my hand and caused the Great Seal of the said State to be hereunto affixed at Dover this twenty-seventh day of April in the year of our Lord one thousand nine hundred and fifty-nine and of the Independence of the United States of America, the one hundred and eighty-third.
J. CALEB BOGGS, Governor
