Both the stories were very amazing. They are basically the same story of struggle from different view points. DJ Gregory was a 30 year old man that overcame his disabilities and set a goal that see completely impossible for him, but he accomplished it in November of 2008. He walked every hole of the 2008 gold tour, an amazing 900 miles in only 45 weeks. Pat Furlong was also an inspiration because she stuck to her goal of finding a cure for Duchenne's disease even after her two passed away from it. I could very slightly connect my life to Pat Furlong's. My bother was born deaf and the doctors had no idea why, the labor was very bad and he almost died but they thought he would have been a normal healthy boy. My parents for years took him to different doctors to try to save his hearing or figure out what was wrong.
My brother had two operations and can hear today, he speaks with a little delay, but its otherwise normal and healthy. But I could just imagine how my mother and how Pat Furlong felt when she found out something was wrong with her boys. And that they were going to doe.
In the video Walk On DJ said that the day he would accomplish his goal would be a hard day, but a great one. That made me think of Mrs. Furlong when she continued to pester doctors and they finally sent her to the director of agency, who said "we have heard about you Mrs. Furlong". That had to be a great moment for her. When she realized she pestered them so much that they knew her, and knew she wasn't going anywhere!
These were very inspiring readings.
