I Came I Stayed: How being born with Cerebral Palsy never slowed me down even at 80. AMA!
My short bio: I'm a retired special education teacher and advocate for disability rights. I was born 1935 in Duxbury Massachusetts with cerebral palsy. I received my Associates degree in occupational therapy from Manchester College in Connecticut and went on to receive my Bachelors in special education from Old Dominion University in Norfolk, Virginia. This is my class in 1958 in Washington D.C with Congressman Bill WhiteHurst (see proof). You can read about this story and so many more in my new book I just self-published called “I Came - I Stayed: The True Story of My Life with Cerebral Palsy” including meeting John Kennedy when he was a Senator in 1958, Receiving a nomination in 1996 from the Whitehouse for the Golden Rule award and how even at 80 I am still fighting and advocating for disability rights.
