WOODING'S WEBSITE 1581 views UK
My name is Penn and I created this website for a number of reasons really. I had a C5/6 quad injury 20 years ago following a swimming pool accident. Some of you may think that life in a wheelchair is a life not worth living. In fact, it's quite the opposite...it doesn't mean you have to sit in your chair and vegetate. There are so many things in life to do and enjoy!. Don't let your disability ruin the rest of your life. Don't look at your wheelchair as if it is a ball and chain, get out there and see what you're capable of, you'll be surprised....
