Author and YouTube personality Zach Anner was asked by the Cerebral Palsy Foundation to help spread awareness about the condition he lives with every day: cerebral palsy.

If for whatever reason you aren't able to watch the video right now (which we definitely recommend), here's the quick transcript of his list.

  1. I am not a dog
  2. It's pronounced səˈrēbrəl pôlzē, "seh-ree-brahl pahl-see"
  3. It's hard to make finger lists
  4. My legs are fine (the problem is in my brain)
  5. Having cerebral palsy doesn't make you inherently inspiring
  6. You can still have a great life
  7. We don't all know each other
  8. I might need help sometimes, but I'm just a normal person who needs help
  9. Cerebral palsy can be a tool for good
  10. Zach Anner doesn't know anything and you shouldn't assume that the things he says are true for all people with cerebral palsy in the world
