2018 Year End Party Highlights

On January 4, FBLI members united to celebrate 2018. The event hosted by Shully’s Cuisine and Events, featured guest speaker David Cooks, author of Getting Undressed: From Paralysis to Purpose.

At the age of 15, Cooks a sophomore who loved playing basketball at Marquette High Cchool experienced a spinal aneurism, leaving him a T-6 paraplegic.

Refusing to let the wheelchair determine the man, he made the decision to persevere from the very beginning-and he never let go of his passion for the game.

Cooks told FBLI members about his journey to independence and encouraged members how  to embrace life’s challenges and thrive despite them.
