Below are two videos that tell the inspirational story of John Riccio. The first video is from several years ago, and will give you some background about who he is and what he’s endured throughout his life.
The second video is a bit longer, but definitely worth 10 minutes of your time. Here is a man who has now endured over 80 operations and still remains upbeat and positive about life. We can all learn from his example.
In his own words,
“I don’t think people realize that they’ve been so blessed to have a body that works right… You guys have a gift that I only dream about… Everything is a gift… Don’t take it for granted.”
He goes on to say,
“Don’t let other people dictate the way your life is going to be… A champion never looks at what he is going through, only what he is going to.”
Thanks to John for sharing his wisdom and best of luck with the journey ahead.
