Cedar Fort is excited to announce that author Jack Rushton will be visiting from California this week to do a book tour in Utah. Jack is the author of, "It's Good to Be Alive: Observations from a Wheelchair."
On August 1, 1989, while enjoying an afternoon with his family in Laguna Beach, California, Rushton bodysurfed a small, seemingly harmless wave toward shore. Unexpectedly, the wave drove him into the sand head first. Since that day, he has been paralyzed from the neck down and ventilator dependent. Rushton's cheerful attitude amidst such a trial has helped others reach beyond themselves and become better people. He inspires others to adjust their attitude about their present situation, whatever it might be.
