Special Books by Special Kids Interview

See post for the latest UPDATE!

Nicole Luongo

BREAKING NEWS: Dreams really do come true! I’ve been chosen to be interviewed by Christopher Ulmer from Special Books by Special Kids on June 23! I’ve always wanted to meet Chris and cannot believe this is real! I’m honored to represent the 17 million people who have cerebral palsy and to show the world What Cerebral Palsy Looks Like! Of course, I’ll talk about SDR, too. 🙂

Be sure to check out SBSK’s new website and donate if you can. Please share!


Stay tuned for the link to the video!

1/23/17: UPDATE – I know many of you have been waiting to see my interview with Special Books by Special Kids. Due to technical difficulties, it will not be featured on their page. I’ll see if Chris can send me a clip to share. I look forward to being interviewed again when he comes back to South Florida.
