Dare to Have a Voice. Your Voice Matters to Plant the Seeds of Hope in this World! 

Politics and sports. 

These two words have always represented two separate and divergent worlds to me.

That is no longer the case anymore.

The Art of Providing Legendary Customer Service

Apr 30, 2019 2:46:02 PM / by Işıl Tanyeri


When Jason Barker set up at the PVA Wheelchair Bowling tournament in Shawnee, OK earlier this month he didn't know what to expect other than watching some wheelchair bowling and meeting the athletes, as usual. Jason Barker, a traveling regional sales manager for ABC Medical since November 2018, had been traveling since the NWBA Junior and Women's Championships in New Lenox, IL and Quad Rugby Championships in Rockford, IL the previous weekend. On day one of the PVA Midewestern Wheelchair Bowling Tournament, one of the bowlers rolled up to the ABC Medical table. We'll call him Nick in this article to protect his privacy. The thing about Nick is that he had not packed enough catheters with him for the 4 day trip in Shawnee, OK. He said he was from Colorado Springs. Jason looked at our table display and the catheter boxes underneath the table, searching through the different fr. sizes. He was able to find a few samples of 14 fr. size which is what Nick said he uses and gave them all to him. However, that was not going to be enough for Nick to get through the end of the tournament.

'Live Boundlessly' - A once in a lifetime experience brought to you by The Rollettes

Aug 14, 2018 3:15:21 PM / by Ali Kaplan posted in adaptive sports, independence, LA 2028, wheelchair dance, Rollettes


“I want the world to be accepting of me, but not adapt for me. I want to be able to figure out ways to adapt and get around.  I want to believe that people are helpful and that I can trust them.” shared the Arizona State University student-athlete and a Rollettes Lil Sis Christina Chambers over a phone interview with us earlier this month. In a way she redefined what ‘ABC’ stands for: Adapt.Believe.Compete.  We were fortunate enough to be introduced to two amazing dancers, Christina Chambers and Maria Rabiano through our support of the Rollettes dance team and their Be Boundless Summit which, by the way is coming up this Saturday, on August 18th and we cannot wait for it!

Happily Ever After

Jul 18, 2018 11:19:08 AM / by Dave Kiley posted in adaptive sports, spina bifida, graduation, accident


A family holiday trip to Alabama for Santiago (Santi) Rueda over Memorial Day weekend, simple and sweet. You drive for hours and you visualize along the way the fun you are about to have once you arrive! The vision does not include any negative thoughts, just anticipation of all the activity and food one can have on such a trip....which Santi’s family has done countless times before.

The weekend had begun and Santi and his Mom, Serena, mount an ATV to punch their fun meter together. Something about ATV’s, Jet Ski’s or even sit down mowers that we take for granted. Operation of an ATV seems to be an easy do, as we are unsuspecting participants that unintentionally underestimate the danger that lurks behind the above mentioned equipment.
