Enjoy this awesomely inspiring video of Arthur Boorman, an injured Gulf War Veteran, as he overcomes the disability his doctors told him he'd never be able to overcome!
Years ago, I had a friend who was in a car accident who was told she'd never be able to walk or use her arms. She wouldn't take that as an answer, so worked very hard. Within a year, she was walking and hugging, again!
Moral of these two (of many) stories? To quote a line from Galaxy Quest, "Never give up! Never surrender!" --LKR
