I lived with paralysis for many, many years. My father was 69 when he passed March 19, 2001. Through the years, my father's motto was to keep moving forward. He never expected anyone to feel sorry for him or wanted any pity. We never thought we were the unusual ones; we simply thought this was our normal life. It geared my brother & sisters in the right direction. We learned true life lessons! To all the individuals living with paralysis, I pray for a cure. To my father, I thank you for making me the person I am today!
