Please join me in wishing Eunice Kennedy Shriver Happy Birthday! 

Without the heart, soul and hard work of this gutsy and amazing woman, there would be no Special Olympics. If you believe in the work that Mrs. Shriver has done and continues to do to create greater awareness of those with intellectual disabilities, not to mention what she’s done for their dignity, please consider honoring her with  a gift to Special Olympics.

From the bottom of my special needs advocacy heart, I thank Eunice Kennedy Shriver for her stellar example and leadership.  She continues to be an incredible inspiration for my own work in raising the bar for those with special needs, and she always will.  Read more about this remarkable woman here.
Now there’s a celebrity worth all the press, and a life well lived.
