Thank you for listening to yourself and your inspirational wishes. We all have the power to accomplish what we want....with a strong will, positivity, and supportive team. You are a beautiful reminder for everyone to be grateful for what we have, not what we do not have. Your courage, tenacity and commitment speaks volumes!

What an amazing accomplishment! I'm so pleased I read this. He is certainly heroic and sets a fine example for not only disabled people, but also those who are able-bodied.

I thought it would be a story similar to a young disabled Canadian who wanted to go up Kilimanjaro a few years ago. In his case, those accompanying him had to carry him over all that difficult terrain and climb all the way to the top and down again, but he received the credit.

Amazing.... God is Good. What a wonderful determined soul.
