Hard work pays off for Athlete with Disability

May 12, 2011

My son had a stroke at the age of 2.  He has played all sorts of sports since he was 5.  He does everything one handed as he is completely paralyzed in his right arm and hand. 

See my post on his road to the paralympics.  Here is a video of Danny on his local parks and rec team.  Danny loves being a leader.  Danny is also on his school team which he had to try out for.  Only 15 kids made the team.  Keep in mind that Danny’s school is one of the largest in our state and the competition is fierce.  Danny’s team was so good, that Danny is on the 2nd-3rd string.  That’s okay, he is constantly working to get better.  He spends hours in the gym perfecting his shot and practicing his ball handling. 

I hope that this video will inspire you to have HOPE for your child.  ANYTHING is possible.  GO DANNY!
