Cerebral Palsy Can’t Stop Kevin Molyneaux

By Leigh Harper, May 19, 2017

Kevin Molyneaux has yet to meet a challenge that he can’t handle, and that’s saying a lot, considering he has cerebral palsy.

Molyneaux’s lungs were undeveloped when he was born two months premature, so his brain did not receive adequate oxygen. As a result, the left side of his body is significantly weaker than the right and he developed cerebral palsy.

Both of Molyneaux’s legs turned inward when he was young, and walking was only made possible after several surgeries and years of physical therapy. Now 33 years old, he has undergone more than 10 surgeries on various parts of his body including his eyes, stomach and mouth.

However, Molyneaux, who lives with his parents in Dawsonville, Georgia, has defied the odds in every sense of the word. Despite his significant physical challenges, including the inability to drive, he obtained a bachelor’s degree in sociology from Kennesaw State University and a master’s in mental health counseling from the University of North Georgia. He worked as an addiction counselor in the emergency room at Atlanta’s Grady Hospital, a Level 1 trauma facility, before deciding to go back to school at Luther Rice Seminary, where he is currently pursuing a master’s of divinity degree. Molyneaux credits his time at Grady with his decision to change his course and go to seminary.
