For Bill Cawley, (pictured with his family) life did not start or end with the accident that left him paralyzed from the chest down. In fact, if you were to ask one of his closest friends how the accident changed him, he would reply, "Cawley has not changed; he just sits down a lot."
Since a 1992 diving accident that had left him paralyzed from the chest down, Cawley would agree that, his life has changed, but he hasn't.
At the age of 42, Cawley is a husband, father, successful businessman and a philanthropist (he works to raise money for the Reeve Foundation). However, at the age of 24, Cawley had no idea that he would eventually become all of these things; all he knew was that he was not going to let his condition stop him from trying to.
Get to know Bill!
