The interview will be televised during the news in the above listed times.

Miss Kennedy shares her struggle recovering from bacterial spinal meningitis as well as complications due to a brainstem stroke. The public is invited to attend.

The illness and stroke that left Aday a legally blind ventilator-dependent quadriplegic, failed to dim her love of life and determination to spread a message of inspiration and hope.
Joan Hallmark shares Aday’s story of triumph over tragedy in a memorable interview. In the fourteen years since becoming disabled she has cried and laughed her way through the hard times. Aday’s “CAN DO” philosophy shapes her speeches and writing.
Her writing has appeared in many newspapers and magazines including five inspirational essays  in the popular Chicken Soup for the Soul books. Currently she is writing her memoir, “Laughter Through Tears,” about her physical and spiritual recovery.

J. Aday Kennedy is the differently-abled writer and speaker making her dreams come true one story and speech at a time. As a speaker, she entertains, instructs, motivates and inspires audiences of all ages by focusing on what she CAN do instead of CAN’T. She surrounds herself with family, friends and positivity in Mineola, Texas. Her picture books, Klutzy Kantor, Stella the Fire Farting Dragon, and Marta’s Gargantuan Wings, published by Guardian Angel Publishing are available through Amazon.

Permanent promotional biography—should remain the same unless experience grows (more books published—more speaking venues, etc.)
