Famous People With Disabilities

Thursday, April 2nd, 2009 by | Filed Under: Cool Sites

I think this site is a blessing to parents who have children with disabilities. It provides them with role models that they can look at who have made a success out of their life in spite of whatever disability they have had to face. I know as a child it would have given me hope.

I suffer from severe social anxiety. There was a time where it was nauseating just to pick up the phone and make a cold call. The anxiety can take over your life and leave you unable to even leave the house. I was watching TV one night and discovered that Paula Dean suffered from the same issue – she had panic attacks that were so severe she couldn’t leave her house. She inspired me to take back control of my life. If she could do it – so could I.

Navigation is really easy, scroll down the page, and you’ll find a listing of different disabilities. After a short definition of what the disability is, you’ll find a link that will take you to a listing of famous people who have or have had that disability.

The listing will give you a brief introduction as to who the person is, and what their disability is, as well as, how they overcame it or how they deal with it.

On a more lighthearted note you can also check out the galleries of famous people when they were young. These images are split into two categories: female famous people, and male famous people.

This site could be a great tool for inspiring someone with a disability to reach inside themselves and find hope to overcome it against all odds. Check it out today!
