Traveling to the Holy Land in a power wheelchair? Yes, it is very much possible

We met Cory Lee Woodard a couple of months ago in Berkeley as he was receiving an award at the Ed Roberts Day awards ceremony.  And we couldn't help but notice a great article he wrote in New Mobility magazine about his recent trip to Israel.


Cory is a power wheelchair user due to spinal muscular atrophy that was diagnosed at the age of 2.  His disability is the equivalent of a C5 spinal cord injury and thus, he uses a power wheelchair to get around.  He's going to Morocco in a couple of weeks.  You can also check out his web site at
