Charitable Considerations: 4 Ways and Lots of Good Causes

Whether you are looking for good karma, to help your fellow man, or whatever your motivation may be, here are four ways and lots of good charitable causes to consider: – One great way to make tax-deductible charitable donations (CharityNavigator.org) – Three worthy individuals in need of direct help (David, Rhonda, and Peggy) – 10 […]

A Tribute to Aaron Parker

My friend and fellow Quad Squad bowler Aaron Parker passed away peacefully in his sleep on the morning of April 24, after a short battle with cancer (I say short because his cancer was discovered approximately 2 weeks before his passing). He is free from paralysis for the first time since July 1, 1981 and […]

Rhonda’s Bowl-a-thon Wrapup

Rhonda’s Bowl-a-thon went great! We had an excellent turnout of Quad Squad folks and able-bodied friends and family, with plenty of good bowling and good fun for all. And more importantly, we did a significant amount of good for Rhonda. Rhonda said she was overwhelmed by all the support and quite grateful for the efforts […]

Bowl-A-Thon to Help a Quadriplegic

We are having a bowl-a-thon fundraiser on February 8, 2014 to help keep my dear friend Rhonda Reese out of a nursing home for as long as possible. Rhonda has been paralyzed from her shoulders down since a car accident in August of 1991 when she was 25. And at age 47, a nursing home […]

Help for Rhonda–Updated

Rhonda is doing pretty well, but without the collective generosity of others, she will likely have to move to a nursing home sometime in 2014 when she’s either 47 or 48. We just updated the goal amount for her fundraiser to $90,000.  We’re hoping that is a fairly feasible goal.  Originally we estimated the amount […]

Vent-Dependent Quadriplegic Bowls 21st 200+ Game

Many wheelchair users are not aware that a relatively new device exists that enables even people paralyzed from the neck down (like me) to bowl in a way that mimics the able-bodied bowling process.  The IKAN (“I can”) Bowler® attaches to one’s wheelchair and allows its user to setup, and then physically approach and release […]

Vent-Dependent Quadriplegic Earns Master’s Degree

My blog is about empowering wheelchair users, and I hope that by sharing that I recently graduated with a Masters of Entrepreneurship from Western Carolina University, perhaps others will be encouraged to pursue additional education or whatever they desire.  I finished my Bachelor’s degree and earned my Master’s online in accredited degree programs.  If it […]

VIDEO: I Can–The Bill Miller Story

A graduate student at the University of Florida, Belinda Post, asked if she could do a video story on me and our efforts to get wheelchair users (back) in the game of life, especially power wheelchair users.  I agreed, although for several months my voice has been unusually soft, so I’m hard to hear in […]

Steve Kettenhoven enters 200 Club — AND sets CP record!

On February 6th, I “introduced” myself (via email) to Steve Kettenhoven, a Wisconsin man who was awaiting delivery of his IKAN Bowler. I just wanted to offer tips or help to make his IKAN experience as fun and successful as possible, since I’m the co-inventor and overall world record holder (this is something I just […]

Quadriplegic Bowler Aaron Parker Enters “200 Club” with a 202

On January 26th, 2013, my friend and fellow Central Florida Quad Squad Bowler Aaron Parker bowled a 202 and became the 6th IKAN Bowler user to bowl 200 or better (to our knowledge; if you know another IKAN user who has broken 200, please contact me). The 200-Club now consists of these wheelchair & IKAN […]
