She “shares the stage” this time with her son, Jenson, a creative, fun-loving kid who was born with cerebral palsy.
Jenson Day: As a newborn, Darla and Chad Day’s son, Jenson, experienced traumatic brain injury due to meconium aspiration. After a year or so of slow development and lagging behind on childhood milestones, Jenson was diagnosed with cerebral palsy. Although his disability keeps him from using his muscles the way he wants to, Jenson’s diagnosis doesn’t limit his creativity, inventiveness, or love for others. Jenson is excited to coauthor his first published children’s book, Charlie and the Cheerful Hearts, with his mother, Darla Day.
