March 25 is Cerebral Palsy Awareness Day! That day is a special day for me because I have Cerebral Palsy and I want to share my amazing story with you. I had Cerebral Palsy when I was born. My umbilical cord wrapped around your neck. The doctors told my family that I would never even talk, walk, or live a normal life. Little did they know. I started talking out of the blue, soon I began to walk on my knees. I used a walker and a wheelchair when I was young.
Until one day at a park I was sitting on the grass watching all of my cousins play and then it happen like this, I got up on two feet and walked over to play. My whole family was blown away by this, some say it was an act of god. At first I was enrolled at a special school for handicap kids, but then my parents took me out and I enter a normal school, where I used a walker all thru my school years because of my balance and the crowded schools hallway.
While at elementary school, I had a special desk, my teachers had to cut down my school work because I use up 3 to 5 times the amount of energy than people use without Cerebral Palsy. In middle and high school I was able to keep up with my school work and could sit in a normal school desk.
Growing up with Cerebral Palsy was hard on me, because People always made fun of me or people treated me like a baby. I used to think that I was the only one with Cerebral Palsy that wasn’t bad, until I met a very good friend of mine Charisse, whom has Cerebral Palsy, and she taught me to be myself. All my life I have always wanted to be an author when I grew up because I always had a story up in my head.
One day on my 22nd Birthday, everything change for me. While working my way through the exhibits at the museum I caught the eye of a man named Frank Cullotta. Who is Frank Cullotta? He is a former mobster turned government witness that has his roots in Las Vegas mob history. Mr. Cullotta took an interest in me and the fact that I was a writer and author. A love interest in my romance novel OMERTA AFFAIR is a connected Mafioso. Since my book was related to the mob, Mr. Cullotta has invited me to a few of his book signing events with the public. Through this connection I has befriended many interesting people that I proud to call my dear friends.
I’m now friends with other former mobsters, FBI agents, CIA/FBI operatives, journalists and media types, true crime authors, movie producers and writers, and many others. With The help of these friends of mine I’m happy to say that I had published three well-received romance novels. I have made some pretty astonishing friends whom like me for me.
In honor of Cerebral Palsy Day, March 25, 2015. My dear friend’s Paul Scharff, the co-author of Murder In McHenry and Ronald Fino author of The Triangle Exit has made me this outstanding and astounding video about my life for Cerebral Palsy Day! I admire and encourage all of you to challenge the speed bumps.
