Beschreibung

Gary McPherson contracted life-threatening polio during the epidemic of 1955 which left him a quadriplegic. He retains just enough coarse movement in his left hand to click a mouse and enough strength in his left leg to push his wheelchair backwards a few feet. Gary cannot feed himself or comb his hair. Yet his achievements are amazing. He is a husband and father, has coached championship sporting teams, is past-chairman of the Premier's Council for the Status of People with Disabilities, and is currently both a lecturer in the School of Business at the University of Alberta and executive-director of the Canadian Centre for Social Entrepreneurship.

Pressestimmen

"Read Rolling On and you will find yourself worrying less about the cold weather outside and thinking more about the warmth of your family. You will appreciate the human condition, which seemingly can conquer almost anything if the will is strong enough." Susan Jones, St. Albert Gazette. "This is a small book but one packed with thought - why life is worth living and what we can do with whatever time is left." -- Jerry Todd-Jenkins, Canada Post, 6th September 2004. "[Rolling On] profiles ventilator user and respiratory polio survivor Gary McPherson, currently executive director of the Canadian Centre for Social Entrepreneurship in Alberta, Canada. The black and white photos are superb, supporting a well-written text that chronicles the polio epidemic in Canada, Gary's life and his drive for independent living." Ventilator-Assisted Living Journal, Vol. 18, No. 2 "Dr. Hankins, M.C., has picked a courageous and resolute Canadian to bio. Polio victim McPherson cannot feed himself, yet he moved from institutional life to raise a family, coach championship sports and contribute in many ways to a better life for people without disability." -- Ron MacIsaac, Island NEWS (Victoria, BC), 22 November 2004
