Paraplegic Skateboarder Defying Odds
When I first read an article on Danny Pelletier. I just couldn't believe it. Such an amazing story. He was born with a tumor on his spinal cord, which is called Spina Bifida. When the doctor was performing surgery to remove the tumor, he cut Danny's Spinal cord and that left him paralyzed from the waist down since Danny was 5 months old. Danny found these crutches in the clinic one day and the rest is history. He uses the crutches to do what his legs cannot. I swear after watching the video, you'll agree Danny is better than some skaters that have use of there legs...it's insane! A very heart touching story....check out the videos on this amazing guy...it's amazing what the human spirit can conquer sometimes!
