Boston Celtics’ “Hero Among Us” Honoree

I have just received confirmation that on Friday, May 4, I will be awarded the Boston Celtics’ “Hero Among Us” Award which honors individuals making an overwhelming impact on the lives of others. Following in the beautiful footsteps of friends like Nashira and Colleen. I just wanted to thank you all for the constant support and inspiration that fuels me to keep trying to make a difference.

Willie the Wheelchair

Here it is… My first children’s book. Thank you for all the support (physically, emotionally and financially) that went into making this a reyality and a reality.

“This beautifully illustrated book introduces readers to Willie and his new family; the Everest’s, who adopted Willie. However, Willie doesn’t feel he fits-in and frankly has trouble adjusting to his new surroundings. Willie later learns that he has a very special purpose and this discovery leads him to realize how it was his own thinking that brought about feelings of isolation.” Wiggles Room Blog
