My name is Adriana Mallozzi and I have cerebral palsy. Thanks to the love and support of my family and friends, I've always believed I could do anything I set my mind to. That includes going to college, rock climbing, and traveling the world.

I enjoy helping others with disabilities foster independence and self-confidence. I believe it's necessary for them to know that life doesn't end with a disability – as it’s equally important for everyone to embrace differences without passing judgment.

That's why when I learned about Tim and Mike of Handicap This!, I thought, "what a creative and entertaining way to get the message across!" Loving a good challenge, I decided I was going to bring the duo from Chicago, IL to Boston, MA.

Such a great feat would require finding others who would be just as passionate and work just as hard to make it happen, so I partnered with Becky Curran, a little person who works as a Social Media Marketing Specialist and Motivational Speaker, Remon Jourdan, a quadriplegic who is a poet, author and Easter Seals Massachusetts Regional Board Member, and Todd Civin of Civin Media Relations, which specializes in media relations for individuals with disabilities.

We need your help to make it happen. You can show your support by making a contribution to the campaign and sharing our mission with family and friends.

Your generous donation will help offset travel expenses, room and board, and other event related costs. The plan is to have Handicap This! in the Boston area from November 11-15 and to hold at least three performances.  The show will further the message of "Judgment Not Allowed" and inspire all of us to do more with what we have. Handicap This! will stir your senses, challenge your thinking and wake up your attitude. It's a look at breaking down barriers and living with disabilities - most of all, it's about EVERYONE'S potential.

Any additional funds raised will be donated to Easter Seals Massachusetts, a non-profit organization committed to helping children and adults with disabilities lead independent lives.


Addititional Thoughts...

The initial planning stages for this project began in February, but due to the recent Boston tragedy it has become even more important to me that this event be a success. I can't help but think about those who recently acquired a disability and must now re-learn many tasks of daily living. As someone who was born with a disability, I never had the experience of walking or effective use of my hands; the ways in which I function are the norm for me. I can only imagine how traumatic it would be to lose the abilities that I do have. This event emphasizes that life does not end with a disability. If this campaign succeeds, we would like to invite those who were injured as our honored guests to one of the performances.


ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS
