FOX NEWS Health

Hopefully the post headline doesn't turn away readers because of their negative feelings towards FOX NEWS because this has nothing to do with politics.

In December 2015, I came across an article about providing a "disabled" elderly man equal access to a golf course in Massachusetts. I couldn't believe the article tied in to the disabled community. The golfer was in his 70s and had trouble walking on a golf course. I don't want to sound mean, but that is not the same as being fully disabled, at least in my opinion. I wrote a response to the article online expressing a few things that Kellisa deals with every single day in every day life. I hit send and moved on feeling satisfied to fight another fight for kids like Kellisa.

To my surprise, I received a reply back from Melinda Carstensen with an offer to be interviewed for a possible article on FOX NEWS Health. I was thrilled to have this platform and the opportunity to reach so many readers. I did not hesitate in accepting the offer.

I prepared myself to talk about the struggles of the disabled community and tell some of our stories of discrimination. The interview lasted 90 minutes and we covered many topics. I had no idea how the completed feature would turn out. We appreciate the opportunity to be covered on FOX NEWS Health.

You can find the article here.
