And Now, Some Good News…

A former Rutgers football player, Eric LeGrand, paralyzed in 2010, has embraced life and love.  And, over the course of his recovery among wheelchair races and therapy dogs, he befriended a young woman with cerebral palsy, Gianna Brunini.   The next step was for him to ask Gianna to her high school’s (Hannover Park) senior prom; he did so by giving a motivational speech to all the students, as reported in a recent newspaper article.

Some very positive news from our own community!  And Eric has already earned the admiration of President Obama.
