After many months of waiting, I'm so excited to announce that I got a grant from The Challenged Athletes.org, they gave me a $1500 grant to help me get a Strike Force Power Chair for powersoccer! So with all the donations from GoFund me and the grant and all my money I had in savings, I was finally able to order my Strike Force! But it's going to be a long time before I even practice in it because I'm having surgery this Thursday. Once l do, I think my teammates are going to be scared of me but hopefully before then I will get used to it enough. The cool thing is that I can practice against my dad and I kinda want to see my mom practice with me too because that will be a funny experience to see. She'll probably be a scaredy cat though, and hopefully my dad won't play around with it and break it, since he's been known to do that too! I think the chair is mainly going to help me with catching up to the ball, especially when there's a break away. When I first started playing powersoccer there was only one kid with a Strike Force chair, now we will have 5 players with the faster chairs! I just ordered it yesterday but I think it takes like a month to get it....so more waiting!!
My name is Cameron Broyles, I'm 16 years old and I started my blog 5 years ago when I was 11. I have paraplegic cerebral palsy and cannot communicate in a traditional fashion. I am home-schooled now but I used to go to main stream public school. My love of exploring first began with going on field trips to learn about history. I play power soccer and it's become my sport of choice! I am originally from Texas but now I live in Colorado and LOVE it! I love to travel and explore but the majority of times it is much more difficult than the average person. I want this blog to not only be my mouthpiece for my friends and family but also give some ideas and maybe light a spark for other people with disabilities to get out and explore life! I was first coerced into starting a blog from my mom and dad and I have to admit that sometimes it's not my favorite thing to do but what I love most about having a blog for these past 5 years is that it's a daily reminder of all my blessings from God and how grateful and thankful I am for everything I have in my life.
