One of the highlights of my career was interviewing Dana Reeve for my book. What was to be a ten-minute talk turned into a two-hour blessing filled with her spirited wisdom. Dana would have been 49 today, and like her husband Christopher Reeve, is greatly missed by the special needs community.

Here’s a special tribute to this remarkable woman from one of my favorite organizations, the Dana and Christopher Reeve Foundation (CRF).

I will never forget our brief time together.
