The Part of Chronic Pain that we can control

John O’Leary, a motivational speaker,  was a 9 year old burn victim,with burns covering 100% of his body, who was given less than a 1% chance to live. John is a real inspiration and talks about his ability to move his focus beyond his scars. He has a website and monthly inspirational newsletter that speaks from the heart. Here is a link to a video where he talks about controlling not our circumstances but our approach to them.

About Mary Byrne Eigel

Before writing children’s books, Mary spent many years teaching in classrooms and creating art in her studio. She was born with bi-lateral hip dysplasia, a painful condition that causes normal activities, like walking, to be challenging. As a child, when Mary had to trek long distances, she often wished she had a wheelchair. For her, a wheelchair offered pain-free opportunities, not limitations. Mary grew up in Chicago, which is the lakefront inspiration for the town of Sail. She lives in Missouri with her husband and two dogs, Beaux and Trey.
