Marly Cornell tells the story of her daughter Cody, a person of joyful spirit and infectious humor who travels, falls in love more than once, commits to a life partner, advocates for others, and achieves a life of independence - in spite of plentiful and confining physical disabilities. Whether dealing with school, relationships, sex, work, Internet romance, multiple surgeries, bias, barriers, or fear, Cody's charming combination of innocence, wisdom, and sense of fun have a profound effect on everyone she encounters.
Through this story of love, laughter, faith, and miracles, Marly illuminates the deeper truth, allowing us a glimpse at something Cody knew all about, the complete inability of circumstance to deflect greatness of spirit, a reminder that each day of life is best engaged with a sense of achievement and celebration.
The Able Life of Cody Jane: Still Celebrating is supported by the Spina Bifida Association and endorsed by the Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation.
