Don't Quit:Ross Cordaro Documentary

On Feb. 14, 1974, Ross Cordaro, a gifted athlete and freshman football player for the Dunmore Bucks, was injured in a freak wrestling accident that left him a quadriplegic. His chances of walking again were very slim. Just 14 years old at the time, it led him to becoming the youngest patient at Allied Services for medical care and physical therapy.

Prior to the annual Thanksgiving morning game between the Bucks and West Scranton Invaders, Ross surprised the Scranton Memorial Stadium crowd by walking to midfield in an emotional scene.Two years ago, Ross asked if I would help tell his story. I felt that I knew enough creative filmmakers to tell this story in a documentary format.

28893648_15229583900_r.jpeg     Through working on Ross’ film, “The Mosaic Project” was formed.  Our mission is: Motivated by the concept, “Broken into Beautiful” The Mosaic Project exists to inspire healing, growth and self-empowerment through engagement with the arts. We strive to effect positive change in individuals and communities in the spirit of healing, connection, transformation and service.

We have been filming Ross’ family, friends and physical therapists for the past two years. His story is very inspiring and needs to be told. Any donations made will go toward the costs of filming and editing the documentary to ensure that the final story will be told.
