|International Disability Rights Affirmation Conference|
Friday, November 10, 2023
Joseph English was a successful entrepreneur and an award-winning stone carver when his life changed dramatically in an instant. A car wreck left him fighting for his life. He was given only 24 hours to live by the doctors who initially treated him, but now he lives as a quadriplegic, 6 years later.
As part of rebuilding his life, Joseph established the QuadRebuild charity. It assists persons with spinal cord injury to rebuild their lives and their homes in order to have a better future.
Joseph is also the author of Living With a Spinal Cord Injury: My life as a quadriplegic. He will be speaking at 7am SLT at the Sojourner Auditorium on Virtual Ability island as part of the International Disability Rights Affirmation Conference.
