In 2006 Paul was asked to be a guest speaker, on Cruise for a Cause along with actress Terri Garr. This video was of him on the cruise, while he was still walking, talking, speaking, singing, and having somewhat of a normal life. He can no longer walk, or sing, and needs help eating, drinking, sitting up, and is totally exhausted most of the day. Shaving, showering, even brushing his teeth, all the easy things in life we do without thinking, is a major problem for him. He is housebound, and misses all his family and friend's functions...yet he still never gives up hope or faith, that he will some day sing and walk again. He is constantly encouraging others with MS, not to give up, and to keep fighting. Paul has always taken "the road less traveled". He pushed his way into recording studios, auditions, and anything having to do with music. After years, of eveyone telling him it was impossible, a two time Grammy Award winning producer, agreed to recorded his album. He was experiencing symptoms, was very ill and returned home. After years of sacrafice, hard work, and living his dream, he was struck down by this disease. Paul has been an activist for MS, since he was diagnosed in 2001. He was a guest speaker on the Montel Williams show, Cruise for a Cause, and MS Kids Connection.
All his friends and family are organizing this fund raiser for Paul, to have stem cell treatments, in order to improve his quality of life. Please find it in your heart to help us reach this goal. We would appreciate any donation you can afford. Thank you.
