Barrow Neurological Institute says
Have you ever felt that something outside of your control was preventing you from living the life that you had imagined?

Joe Stone has, but he didn’t let that stop him. On August 13, 2010 a tragic speed flying accident left Joe as an incomplete C7 quadriplegic. The outlook wasn’t good, but Joe didn’t believe in circumstances that could not be changed; he believed in challenges that could always be overcome.

Since his accident, Joe Stone has dedicated his life to help others realize that having a disability is nothing more than a perceived limitation, and that living with one doesn’t mean you can’t do something. It just means that there’s a different way to do it. He is an outdoor adventurer, a motivational speaker, a spinal cord injury (SCI) peer mentor, and the founder and one of the driving forces behind the Joe Stone Foundation. The foundation’s mission is to help merge the disabled and able-bodied communities through outdoor activities that can be experienced together regardless of their ability level.

Joe knows firsthand how hard it is to come back from such a life-changing challenge, and he knows that it’s much more than just a physical battle. Because of Joe Stone’s natural spark, grit, and heart, he’s dedicated his life to helping others take control of and conquer their own disabilities.

This community presentation will be on Feb. 9 at Ability360 and is open to the public free of charge. To register, call 602-406-3067 or email Lindsey.Possehl@DignityHealth.org.
