UroMed has released its second e-Book called Moving Forward: Stories of Hometown Heroes.
The book, written by John E. Phillips, features true stories from UroMed's Hometown Heroes blog. Chet Dyreson has paraplegia, but built a gas-powered wheelchair and drove across the country in it. Tony Bell was born with spina bifida and was not expected to survive infancy, but he's now a bullrider. Karen Roy was a college student when she sustained a spinal cord injury in a shooting; today, she's a medical social worker. And Trevor Baucom, a Black Hawk helicopter pilot who sustained a spinal cord injury in a crash in Afghanistan, became the first professional competitive shooter to compete in a wheelchair.
UroMed President Craig Stevens said in a news announcement about the second book, "The idea for Hometown Heroes was inspired by the thousands of people who participate in our online peer support community on Facebook through our non-profit program, Life After Spinal Cord Injury. As they continually share their own stories and pictures of success in everyday life, we wanted to help spread the good news even further to eliminate stereotypes associated with disabilities and to inspire even more people who may not have yet discovered Life After Spinal Cord Injury."
Moving Forward is readable on Kindle and iPad, and is available at Amazon.com for $2.99.
