For documentation sake, here are Allie and my speeches from “An Evening with Chris Trapper to Benefit Invisible Illnesses,” which was held on April 14th at Lou and Harry’s Sports Bar and Grill.
“Starting to feel better, so bring on the weather I feel I’ve prepared for anything…
We are the ones who are never afraid, We need no rehearsal to dance. We’re well aware this may be our last chance,
So bring on the avalanche.”
That was an excerpt from one of Chris’s songs, “Avalanche.” For the last two years I have been learning how to face my Avalanche. And you know what? The fact that I am able to stand on my two feet in front of you tonight instead of in my wheelchair, is one of the reasons for me to continue to fight to face my Avalanche.
