The Reason why we have the Paralympics? Tagged with:

As we have finished watching an outstanding Olympic games we can fill the next two weeks with anticipation for the Paralympic games which be held September 8-17. The best part of these games is that they will be on the same TV channel as the Olympics. Now, I do look forward to the break! After being glued to my TV at night and on weekends I can use a little break. But not too long! Remember the Paralympics have about 19 different sports plus they will also be in the same beautiful city of Rio. What should not be forgotten about these Paralympic games is that there would be no Paralympic Games if it is was not for the effort of the athletes, NBC, USOC, IOC, Rio Olympic Committee and Dr. Ludwig Guttmann. Who is Dr. Guttmann?

What has been the best part of your summer?

What has been the best part of your summer? Tagged with:

It is not every day that you get an opportunity to go to Moscow, Russia. I am not sure if people choose Moscow as a vacation spot. However, I, along with 8 other USA representatives, was selected to be part of this historical trip. I eagerly accepted for three reasons: one, I was able to travel to a country that I had never been before. I got to visit a friend from Moscow, who I met in the states about 3 years ago. Last, I was given an opportunity to teach and play wheelchair rugby. After 20 years of playing wheelchair rugby you would think that I would be burned out. Not yet!

What is that sound that I hear? Oh yes, it is the sound of a bat cracking while it hits a ball. It is the popping of a ball into a glove and oh yes, the smell of free cut green grass. You know that I am talking about baseball.

Proper personal hygiene is profoundly significant for preventing illnesses of all kinds. Besides, good personal habits can also help you emotionally. Our human body is capable of developing diseases, especially on the skin. And, unfortunately, an athlete is more susceptible to such illnesses due to his or her nature of sport. Therefore, it is imperative for athletes and people in general to follow a healthy lifestyle that includes excellent levels of personal hygiene.

Spinal Cord Injury Awareness Month

Spinal Cord Injury Awareness Month Tagged with:

On May 2 2005, when my husband woke up from surgery after his motorcycle accident and heard the words “spinal cord injury” and “paralyzed” one of his first thoughts was, I am going to walk again and that remained a theme throughout his rehab. He thought if I just work hard enough, if I just keep trying, I will walk again. If you walk through the halls of any rehab center today you would probably hear the same mantra from the majority of patients. No one wants to accept the reality that they will experience the rest of their life from a wheelchair, but that is the reality for millions of Americans.
