School is going well!

Sorry about the long wait for a new post. I've been pummeled with homework, especially writing.

Guess what Derrick Rose did? I posted something on his Facebook page and he replied to it the next day! I said "I believe that you will get back to 100%. I use a wheelchair all the time because I have Cerebral Palsy and you inspire me! I'm 13 and you are my hero." Derrick commented, "Thanks Jack, appreciate the support... Stay inspired and keep working hard!"

I have been feeling so good lately. I haven't been so down about having CP. I am helping with my school's football team (GO HURRICANES!) and we are 4-0-1. My friends on the team make me feel that I'm part of the team and the coaches have actually let me call a play in a game.

I wasn't ready for school to start but now I'm working really hard and getting good grades. I also get to see my friends more which is great. My teachers are the best. I feel like having CP doesn't matter at school.


  1. I saw that comment on Derrick Rose's Facebook page. How awesome! Imagine a middle-schooler named Jack could also inspire a professional athlete! :)

    I'm glad you're back into the routine of school again. The Hurricanesare lucky to have you!

    Keep up the good work! And keep smiling, buddy!!

  2. Wow, that is so cool!! What play did you call?
