I was doing a search on Twitter for people with disabilities when the name, @chadlhymas came up. At the age of 27, Chad Hymas' life took an unexpected path when a bale of hay fell on him and broke his neck. A year and half later, Chad broke a world record by wheeling from Utah to Las Vegas, a total of 513 grueling miles. Today, Chad Hymas is a member of the National Speakers Association and he does over 200 presentations a year, worldwide.
I connected with Chad on Facebook and began to look forward to his uplifting quotes and posts. There was something about Chad that intrigued me-- the more I read, the more I wanted to get to know him and meet him. I signed up for his Speaker Track to see if he would be coming to the Chicago area.
Chad was scheduled to speak in Ghana, Africa in early March, but due to an oversight, he did not have his visa with him and the trip was canceled. "
