London Calling

Forget all my kid stuff for a minute. Let’s talk about why we are going to London in a few months!

My husband and David Wagner have been friends since grade school but Shane didn’t know that David would be a world class athlete.

In 1996 David suffered a life changing accident at the beach in LA that left him paralyzed.

After the accident there were years of struggle, but eventually he found his way back to a passion.

After 4 Paralympic medals in wheelchair tennis, he is headed to the London Paralympics and we will be there to cheer him on.

Here short video of David. This was made back in January as he was preparing for the Australian open.

He most recently started a free wheelchair tennis camp for disabled children. It took place June 9th in Portland Oregon, David said he had an amazing time with the kids.

The Paralympics follow the Olympics. The opening ceremonies kick off on August 29. I will share his journey and ours with you. Until then, I leave you with some pictures of a wonderful man, extraordinary athlete and amazing friend.
