I love the fact that my son and Christopher Reeve share the same birthday. Both were gone too soon. Eric would have turned 21 today, and the story of his life continues to impact special needs families and professionals throughout the world.

Today would have been Christopher Reeve’s 59th birthday. The world still misses this remarkable man and special needs activist, but his legacy and work continues through one of my favorites non profits, the Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation, and the Paralysis Resource Center.

Read a tribute to this super man from his son, Matthew Reeve, here.
