Sharing “I CAN!” attitudes: Jordan Cook
Jordan Cook Conquering It All!
My name is Belinda (Bellie) and my son is Jordan Cook. He has several “disabilities” that affect his legs and arms. In addition, he has CP and Autism; sensory issues and low muscle tone among others. He has just gone on the biggest scout camp at Woodhouse! There, the leaders helped him to achieve and do everything at camp…even climb the rock-climb wall. This was a magical moment for us all and we shed a tear of happiness! He even got to get “messy” and stay “messy”! I, myself, have spinal bifida and scoliosis that prevents me from doing lots of things! You can imagine how happy I was that he got to take part in so many types of activities. Nothing was too hard for their leaders or our son at camp!
