And disability an opportunity for athlete is here.
Both are great stories....I live with what I think is a pretty big medical condition that limits me, but you know, these two make me seem like a big baby! At least I can get out of bed (most days) and go. Mine is just pain....I can live with that. Mark, you're a great guy, and a great father. Thanks for sharing your and Jon's story with us all.
Its no problem at all. We all sit and complain about the Komets, what they are missing and what they should do. I hope this helps put that into perspective for many. My son doesn't care if the Komets win or lose, or who plays poorly, who should go, who should stay. He's a true Komet fan that supports all the players..because they wear the Komet logo on thier chest. Jon is a true fan..He helps me put it all into perspective everyday..he is MY hero..because he is up against alot, and he does with a smile on his face...how can MD beat that...
Exactly! People like you son put things into perspective for me. I am normally one of the biggest "cheerleaders" for the Komets on this blog, and it gets old reading the negativity from people. I like reading positive stories. And they really do make me feel like my minor disability is so minor that I need to push myself a little harder. I get to go so many places and do so much....it only bothers me a third as much as it used to. They have found a combo of meds that are working to control my pain, so I am a lucky girl. I can only pray that someday they will find something that helps your son and others like him to feel better physically. He's just fine mentally!
