MUSKOGEE, Okla. — A special place in Muskogee needs help keeping its doors open. The Kelly B. Todd Cerebral Palsy & Neuro-Muscular Center, for 44 years, has provided free services to families with children with developmental challenges.

To keep up that work, the center depends on donations.

The annual Christmas home tours fundraiser is coming up next weekend, December 6 and December 7.

Candace Taylor, the center’s Clinical Director and Physical Therapist says, "We don't just see kids with cerebral palsy, we see kids with down syndrome. We see kids that are toe-walking."

Leslie Turner drives about 40 minutes to take her son Taylor’s therapy, twice a week.

“William was born with down syndrome. We have been coming here for about 18 months. We started coming to Kelly B. Todd to help him learn to sit up, crawl, be more active, eating. He had a feeding tube when we first started. [Without Kelly B. Todd ] he wouldn't be where he is today."
