Pamela & Bobby’s Story

“I was taken to the hospital. I thought that I’d arrived at a spaceship.”

Erin’s Story

“… we could also just share in the absurdity of it all, which was ‘What has just happened?”

Gary’s Story

“It’s given me the opportunity to do a lot of… work that that I would never have really considered or thought of as being things I could do.”

Kenny’s Story

“…it was probably the most consistent, in terms of my exercising, I’ve ever been”

“So, that to me made me feel better. The fact that… I was helping people and also the fact that they were saying to me, “Look can we help you?”

“Being in the house with a disabled child that has no understanding of, ‘Why can’t we do this, why can’t we go out?’ was very, very hard”
