Anyone who has seen me around town with my family can’t miss the fact my husband Mike is in a wheelchair. He also suffered a spinal cord injury (ATV accident) at the same point in life – the summer after high school graduation with the whole world at his feet. I guess that’s why Honza’s story has really affected me. I just wish them the best during the long and difficult journey ahead. In time Honza will hopefully have as wonderful a life as Mike and I do.
