It takes resilience, a sound mind, and a very strong will to accomplish what you want in this life. Bob Coomber is the perfect example that life has always more to offer. All you have to do is just stretch your hand and take it.
Bob wasn't born a cripple. It just happened that he was suffering from diabetes which led to his left legs bursting. Bob admitted that this was one of the most painful experiences in his lifetime. He was rushed to the hospital by his father where it was revealed that he'd always be a cripple.
Bob didn't let this hold him back. Before the occurrence of the tragedy, Bob used to fancy hiking so much. It was one of his favorite hobbies. After the incident that left him disabled, it seemed like an impossible feat for him to hike ever again. But this was not so.
Bob had the resilience of a Navy Seal and set out to learn how to hike while in a wheelchair. A feat that is impossible according to many doubting 'Thomas'. The journey was met by many challenges but Bob never gave up on his fulfilling quest.
Recently, Bob hiked across an 11,845-foot Kearsarge Pass in the Sierra Nevada. Hikers along the way usually stop to admire his will and to take pictures with him. One hiker gave testament that the picture would be a motivation to his wife.
Aside from hiking Bob is a father and a husband. His daughter and wife love and adore him so much. Bob is also an advocate for other disabled people in Carolina. He takes groups using wheelchairs as well as war veterans on local hikes as he teaches them ways to navigate the wilderness.
Bob's story is quite an inspirational one. It just shows us all that there is always light at the end of the tunnel and giving up is not an option.
