Hello Mr. Quinn,
I'm a co-coordinator for a small MOPS (Mothers of Preschool) group in Sterling Heights, MI. Our group has had a number of guest speakers present over the years, but the concept of disabilities has never been addressed. I'm not entirely sure why, since I don't have any personal experience with disabilities, but I feel very strongly that it's time our group of moms understand life and experience personal growth through a the perspective and experiences of someone with disabilities. We don't have a large budget to work with, but I figured it couldn't hurt to find out information regarding your speaking fees. Again, I feel a strong, unexplained prodding to present a new perspective to our group of moms and hope you are the answer to that prodding. I'd appreciate any information / speaker pricing. Many thanks! Emily

John, As a mother of a 17 y/o boy with spastic hemiplegia who's dream is to serve his country and carry on the family tradition, I am completely inspired! Even more so as a YN1, USN (Ret.), (1992-2012), I wish I had the honor of serving with you. I am new to your story, but it touches my heart in so many personal ways. I will be sure to continue to follow you.Thank you for your service, sharing, contributions, and courage! God bless!

I just found your web site.. I have a mild form of cerebral palsy and I am having a hard time taking a test to be a special educator because it involves math
I have never met anyone else that has the same problem..

hi john I know it's been a while since I visited you're site. ALOT happened and will happen to me. lets see there is the fact that I want to meet you in person so bad. (and I don't mean to be a little creepy.) I've been thinking when I'm old enough I'll follow in your footsteps, Join the navy, become a yeoman, wipe some jerks blood off my uniform... you know the normal navy stuff. Me and my father have been working out a lot since my last neurologist appointment and are planning to do a 5k walk in October close to Halloween I'm just hoping that there is isn't a animatronic chucky (child's play) or a or mike Myers with a chainsaw forcing us to run & hide for our life's....you know the normal 5k stuff close to Halloween.
you know you were right... people with CP are awesome.
Michael Jonathan Bell.

Hi Mr. Quinn, Just now found your site and read excerpts of your story and someday will read your book. My child is 11 years old, with Severe form of CP, spastic quadripligia, seizure history, etc. He is also DD...It is 2am as I write this and I am still watching over him before I call it in. I want to call and talk to you but...seeing my child in his condition is hard. I just love him for the time we have him--his sister and I.
