“In 1997, I was an active twenty-one-year-old U.S. Marine when I was presented with a ‘defining moment’ in my life. I was diagnosed with AMN (adrenomyeloneuropathy), a degenerative nerve condition that eventually took my ability to walk. After receiving my diagnosis I had to make a decision: I could either give up and let my condition control my life or I could dig deep and push on. I chose the latter. My choice to view my disability as a personal stepping-stone and not as a crutch has given me opportunities I never thought possible.

I hope that my story will motivate others, disabled and ablebodied, to redefine the way they view their own personal challenges. We all have obstacles, but it is how we respond that makes us who we are.”

Chris Kaag, Founder, IM ABLE Foundation
