Fierce Love

Six mothers gathered for ten weeks to share and write about their lives, families, experiences and especially their journeys with their children who have cerebral palsy.

Their writings have been turned into a theater production.  "Fierce Love" is authentic riveting, and inspiring. These mothers share their hopes, life truths, and admit their biggest fears in their messy, broken, and brilliantly beautiful lives.

Directed by Erica Terpening-Romeo and Heath Hyun Houghton

The Friends Breakfast provides a platform for UCP Friends old and new, to share time learning about the organization and the customers we serve.  Presentations will be made by those who benefit from UCP supports: families; children; and adults experiencing cerebral palsy and other intellectual and developmental disabilities.

Our theme this year is simple “limitless”. We have wonderful stories of success, courage, and determination to share with you.  It is the 60th Anniversary of our affiliate chapter, so there is much to celebrate.   As our guest, you will be treated to an excellent meal and have time to chat with others who share in our vision and mission.

The Friends Breakfast is scheduled for April 28th at 7:30 am at the Multnomah Athletic Club, 1849 SW Salmon St., Portland, OR 97205.
