Joey and Zac Cannady detail their family’s journey with disability

“Keep a lot of patience. Sometimes you just have to go with the flow. Obviously, there are a lot of things you can’t fix. There can be lots of anxiety. There can be lots of fatigue. … and so just hang in there with that and go with that. And don’t be so uptight and know that not everything’s going to go the way you want it to all the time. … Just keep yourself from being discouraged.“

Joey Cannady, author of “Living His Dream: .. and How He Helped Me Live Mine,” and his son Zac join Sarah Williams to talk about Zac’s experiences growing up with spina bifida and mindsets for parents of children with disabilities.
