Success Stories


Shawn Bowman

Posted on: Oct 5, 2012

Shawn Bowman has lots of things he thought he would never have:  a house, dog, and family .  Shawn feels lucky and blessed to have all he has and likes to say 5 things he is thankful for each night.  He thinks that people with disabilities should be able to do anything they want to do but not everyone is the same.  Everyone should have more opportunities and chances.

After Shawn's 7th leg surgery and his mother's illness, he decided to take charge of his health.  He was very overweight and has since lost about 36 pounds.  He wants people to look beyond his physical appearance to see what is inside.

Shawn feels the Waiver program has helped him to be more independent, participate in more outside activities, more socialization and time with others.  He tries to focus on the positive things in his life now more than ever.
