Bill Sweeney is an inspirational human.

Bill Sweeney has worked through some pretty challenging times. Those experiences lead him to being a compassion advocate for others that are dealing with life-changing events.

Bill went from dying in an MRI tube to becoming a paraplegic athlete thanks to Sportable. In gratitude, he and his bride-to-be, Cynthia Schmitz, invite you to participate in their Sportable fundraiser “Boundless Possibilities” to help others live beyond their dreams.

Sportable, based in Richmond-Virginia, uses sports to create profound impact for individuals with physical disabilities or visual impairments.

A stroke in Bill Sweeney’s spine left him paralyzed at age 58. That’s when he died in the MRI tube. The next year doctors found an extremely rare & deadly cancer. Again, he died but came back fighting.

Today at age 62, he’s so unstoppable he’s relearning how to walk. He plans to have his first dance with Cynthia at their reception with the help of Parker-Indego exoskeleton and Sheltering Arms Hospital.

Bill Sweeney is an inspirational human.

Bill is, more importantly, a generous man. He and Cynthia have dedicated the November 26, 2016 union of their love as a fundraiser for Sportable because sometimes an organization transforms lives that deeply. Watch the short video of Bill’s story on YouTube to learn more.

You can help create Boundless Possibilities for all by making your tax-deductible donation at Sportable.com or on the “Sportable Boundless Possibilities” FaceBook page.

You can also help by spreading the word: please share this email and invite your friends to like the FaceBook page. Together we can be a part of offering inspiration and gratitude.

Bill & Cynthia thank you for all you are doing to support Sportable. Whether you volunteer, give or share, they thank you from the bottom of their hearts.

About Veterans Day

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Veterans Day is an official United States public holiday, observed annually on November 11, that honors military veterans, that is, persons who served in the United States Armed Forces. It coincides with other holidays, including Armistice Day and Remembrance Day, celebrated in other countries that mark the anniversary of the end of World War I; major hostilities of World War I were formally ended at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918, when the Armistice with Germany went into effect. The United States previously observed Armistice Day. The U.S. holiday was renamed Veterans Day in 1954.

Veterans Day is not to be confused with Memorial Day; Veterans Day celebrates the service of all U.S. military veterans, while Memorial Day honors those who died while in military service.[1]
