Don't let people tell you...

... what you can't do.

That was the message that Gary Johannes was getting across during his 4sight at a 4Networking meeting in Grantham last week.

Although Gary was talking in general terms that none of us should let anyone tell us what we cannot do, his story was more personal.  Several years ago his son, Christopher was in an accident where he broke his back in several places, paralysed from the mid-chest down and had the top surgeon in the land was telling him he wouldn't walk again.

You can read more about their story on their blog, but to sum up briefly, Christopher can now walk, the surgeons still don't understand fully how, and in October 2010 they are both doing a 450 mile bike ride across Vietnam for charity.
