The Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation is searching for the 2013 Best Dad on Wheels.
Every father is special. But does your dad, or another dad you know, who is living with paralysis, demonstrate such important attributes as dedication, love, encouragement, and goodwill on a regular basis? If so, he could be the 2013 Best Dad on Wheels!
Simply tell us in 200 words or less how the dad that is special to you has changed your life, your family's life, or your community. Include a photo of your nominee.
He does not have to be your dad, but he does have to be a dad whether he is a biological, adoptive or foster father.
The nominated father must be living with paralysis.
