Re: Let’s Hear Your Story (LHYS) / Social Impact Organization (SIO)
I visited “Steven Spohn…An unordinarily extraordinary ride.” Very interesting.
I have been afflicted with Multiple Sclerosis (MS) for over 37 years. To say the least, it certainly has not been an easy road.
Along the way, I have met numerous individuals who taught me the true meaning of the word C-O-U-R-A-G-E. As a means of “paying it forward,” I established Let’s Hear Your Story (LHYS). This is a Social Impact Organization (SIO) which collects and posts intense survival stories on the LHYS site.
The “social value” exhibited here is learning survival skills from each other. Please visit the site at http://www.letshearyourstory.org. This is a prototype. We are constantly making updates.
LHYS provides a “nuts and bolts” approach as to how to face any physical challenge.
If at all possible, I would be very grateful if you could please provide me with a synopsis as to what makes you “tick.” This would then be posted on the LHYS site.
Your input is greatly appreciated. Thank you.
My friend just shared your most recent post with me… and I love it. I love your words. Your spirit. Your desire to leave the world better than you found it. I’d love to do a story on you.
Let me know if you’re interested.
