What an interesting story. I really hope that this does open some new doors for Leo and it sounds like he is already a pretty optimistic kind of guy. I am impressed. I wish him all the best with his new app. Thanks Carrie.

Thank You Patrick McConlogue for taking the time!"My life had good moments before this whole thing," Leo told me. "And all I think is now maybe learning how to do something new will give me more opportunities to have more good moments." Happy New Horizons Leo!!!
Thank You for an inspiring story.
