A TEENAGER from Rhyl is to release a song on her 18th birthday which tells of what it’s like for her to live with cerebral palsy.

Kacey Barton, who attends Ysgol Tir Morfa, will share “A Day in the Life” on all major streaming platforms tomorrow (April 19).

It received its first play on the airwaves on Colwyn Community Radio on Monday (April 15).

She hopes the song will convey a message of “resilience and solidarity”, and help ensure others diagnosed with cerebral palsy that they are “not alone”.

Kacey said: “My intention behind creating this song is to foster connection among individuals who, like me, navigate life with cerebral palsy.

“I am completely dependent on family members, and a personal assistant to help with simple day-to-day tasks that people without this condition take for granted. 

“I feel like my body is in constant pain, and nothing really relieves that pain. It feels like a part of my life has been taken away from me.”

Kacey added that the song will aim to “reflect the daily realities” of living with cerebral palsy, a disability which she described as “horrible” and which “strips you of your independence”.
