5 Important Lessons I Learned When I Stopped Being Lazy

Send Adam To Mars

recentpost1I recently started a little side project called “Send Adam to Mars.”

Send Adam to Mars is a cool little side project to raise awareness and money to fight Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA), a disease that’s tossed me in a wheelchair for most of my life.

So please check it out and help spread the word at SendAdamToMars.com.
