“Bill Coon was a dynamic speaker for our graduating students that were moving on to the next level of their lives. My hope was that he would be flexible and age appropriate in speaking to our students about his life experiences and how they might relate to a thirteen year-old’s impending future.
Not only was he relatable to our student body, but his passion for his message was obvious by the positive reactions from the students. In addition, his book was not only inspirational to me, but also helped to put life into a perspective that most people cannot reach having not gone through a life threatening ordeal. Bill’s story is one of unbelievable perseverance; a patient becoming a student of medicine, who in turn, becomes a teacher (so to speak), and finally doing the best with the circumstances he was dealt.”
