  • California quadriplegic student's mother gets honorary degree

    A mother who helped her quadriplegic son earn a degree by attending all his classes has been awarded an honorary diploma at his graduation.

    Judy O'Connor took notes for Marty O'Connor as he studied for his master of business administration at Chapman University in California.
    The retired primary school teacher guided her son across the stage in his wheelchair at Saturday's ceremony.
    Marty was paralysed from the shoulders down by a fall in 2012.

    I saw this, instead of all the negative, anger and violence in the news, it was nice to come across a a story that makes you feel all warm and fuzzy. Sometimes a parents love will astound you and I'm glad she was recognized for it.

      Indeed a warm story.
      What happens when mom can no longer physically care for son? He's appears c4. Getting care at home is a slippery slope into hell. I pray there's a fix, but there won't be a biological fix for certain.
