Karen Lynn suffers from cerebral palsy, left-side hemiplegia and dyslexia. Despite her physical disabilities, she became a teacher and taught dance for 32 years. She believes in hard work and in herself. Nick Masullo, is on wheelchair with multiple sclerosis. He has released his second music CD. He has also received awards for his contributions.
