Sep 05, 2005 — This year, North Country Public Radio is focusing on people and families who live with disabilities. This morning, we begin an audio diary series with the Hannons, a family in Saranac Lake. Kathy and Mike Hannon have two daughters, Rachel and Michaela. Twelve year old Michaela was born with spastic cerebral palsy. In the weeks and months ahead, they'll be sharing their experiences, talking about the ways that Michaela's disability changes their daily lives. This first diary is narrated by Kathy Hannon, a school teacher who works in Lake Placid. We'll also hear from her daughter Michaela. Their audio diary was produced by Brian Mann.
Next Monday: Getting Michaela ready for a day at school.
