Paralyzed from the waist down due to spina bifida and the ongoing surgeries and medical issues associated with the condition, Cody valued and tirelessly worked toward the sort of independence most of us take for granted. All who knew her were touched by Cody’s courage and drive, her ability to inspire others and, of course, her unsinkable sense of humor. She caused us to focus not on limitations, but on possibilities.
This is Cody’s story. More than that, it is her message. Our special guest on this program is Cody’s mother, Marly Cornell. Marly is an award-winning author, an artist and a social justice advocate living in the Minneapolis area. She’s the author of The Able Life of Cody Jane; Still Celebrating. (As this interview was posted, Marly was in Indianapolis speaking at the annual convention of the Spina Bifida Association.) (26:55)
