Chris Norton was living the dream. He was a college football player… but during one game he mis-timed his tackle… and in a moment he could not move. He was paralyzed from the neck down.
You’ve likely seen Chris’ story recently as he’s gone viral and been featured with his new- wife, Emily on countless media sources – including People Magazine, Good Morning Ameirca, CBS Sports and CNN.
In the viral video – you see Chris, who was given a 3% chance of ever moving below the neck, walk down the aisle at his wedding.
About halfway through this interview you’ll also hear from his wife, Emily, who was integral in making that happened.
We talk about so much – what it was like for Chris to have to redefine himself after he lost his ability to be the athlete he always was, what he’s learned about perseverance – and of course the moment he walked down the aisle at his wedding. Plus, we’ll talk about what they’ve both have learned as foster parents to five children.
