Defying the Odds | Chris Norton

chris nortonChris Norton suffered a spinal cord injury playing college football. Doctors gave him a 3% chance of moving anything below his neck again. But, four grueling years later, he defied the odds and walked across the stage at his college graduation with his fiancé, Emily Summers. Three years after that, Chris attempted another incredible feat, walking down the aisle with his wife, Emily. Their moving story is told in a new book, The Seven Longest Yards. Along the way, Chris created the Chris Norton Foundation to help people with spinal cord and neuromuscular disabilities and Chris and Emily adopted five amazing girls, and have fostered a total of 17 children. They are both deeply committed to providing a safe, loving home for children in need.
