I met Susan through her now deceased husband, Art. Art was severely physically disabled from polio early in life. He was never psychologically disabled thanks to the love of Susan and wonderful parents who raised him like a poss-ability not a dis-ability. I worked with Art and Susan through their organization. Art was an empowerment coach, teaching people with all kinds of challenging circumstances to live life superior to conditions that often can provoke us to succumb to the ultimate dis-ability, "I can't." Art trained thousands of people in "I can" by his example and through professionally conducted workshops.
Susan married Art for his total being and commitment to humanity. I know her to be a person whose dedication to service is of "royal" caliber. She is currently completing a book which Art wrote about his childhood years. I believe this book will be a "lighthouse beam" for all persons living with any kind of serious physical, mental or emotional challenge. Susan is a hero for me. She has lived a life of love, dedication and service in most extraordinary fashion. Thank you Susan.

Hey! I salute you for being so loving to your brother. I hope that you may live both your lives to the fullest and I wish you a good health and a prosperous life. Love makes all things possible. I do believe that the greatest love is the one towards a family. If I may be in that situation, no hesitations, I would be more than willing to be an instrument in lengthening my loved one's life.

The writer is both a blessing to the family and is truly blessed to have got an opportunity to show such selfless love. In my case, my mom passed away too quickly before we could even decide on the next steps. If life were to throw up an opportunity, I would say grab it to help others. I love your website - this is what life is all about.

I also donated my kidney to my beautiful sister who is 25 years of age. This act of love has certainly changed our lives. Just to see my sister healthy, without pain and alive is a blessing.
My handsome nephew (17 years) passed away 6 months ago, and his organs were donated. We miss him dearly, but take comfort in the fact he made his mark in this world at this tender age by helping two people to have longer life. Bless you & your brother.
