    Default CP used to cause early death?

    So I just saw a movie called “Touched By Love”(To Elvis With Love) about a teenager with Cerebral Palsy and her caretaker. It was a generally good movie despite some really outdated disability attitudes given it was created in 1980. I thought it was interesting that it was a true story. Since it was a true story one part of the movie that stuck out to me was the medical staff in the movie saying that people with Cerebral Palsy die young. I have CP and I’m much older than the character and I know many people with CP who have normal and very long life spans so I was shocked by this.

    Did Cerebral Palsy use to lead to an early death back in those days? Were the early deaths caused by improper care? Or complications like epilepsy?

    I heard another source say that Cerebral Palsy can be a cause of death? Is CP something that can cause death DIRECTLY? Or do secondary conditions related to CP cause death????
