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.
