Various causes: It is often not known, but any injury to the brain, whether through an infection, or inflammation or low oxygen, or other, can potentially lead to cerebral palsy. Those insults often happen early on in life or even during fetal stages of life.

Be a friend: The best way to help someone with any disability is to treat them as human beings. No one is asking for pity. They are asking to be your friend and supporter. They may need some physical accommodations like help in transportation and it may take more time to communicate with them. Treat them as you would any of your other friends who ask for you help.
