Kutcher From the moment of birth, Michael A. Kutcher began a journey of adversity and
determination. He was born the “unexpected” twin brother of actor, Christopher “Ashton” Kutcher. Michael met
his first challenge at delivery entering the world weighing less than 5 pounds, hardly responsive and struggling to
take his first breath. In 2010, Michael began his advocacy for Cerebral Palsy. His determination and passion have
been evident in his recent involvement in raising political awareness on Capitol Hill, local and national fundraising
and presenting to the Center for Disease Control. At age 13, he received an emergency heart transplant. Michael‘s
inspirational message is uplifting and stimulating to all as he promotes hope and courage through his life’s story of
overcoming challenges and defeating extraordinary odds. Michael is proof that ambition, perseverance and a
positive attitude can surmount even the most incredible obstacles.
