I would like to nominate Judie Moffett Judy is a truly amazing person. Judy is a paraplegic resulting from a car accident 14 years ago. Instead of giving up she has become a breath of fresh air for so many people both disabled & able bodied.
She was instrumental in forming an organization called POWER The purpose of POWER is to enable independence for people with disabilities through advocacy. The group also donates medical equipment to those in need.
Through Judie's efforts the group hosts the East Texas Sports Fest. This event allows those with disabilities the opportunity to engage in activities that they they thought were impossible.
I write this as the mother of a quadriplegic son. I met Judie before my son was injured & she is the reason that I knew he could live a relatively normal life. I assure you that I am not the only person that has this opinion. If you attend one of the many events that POWER sponsors & see the smiles from the people that thought their lives were over you will see that she truly makes a difference & she is a HERO by any definition
