  • Thank you for sharing this inspiring and encouraging story of a real fighter for life!

  • Thank you for writing the important details of love, devotion and commitment it took to raise a child with disabilities in the 50’s. Even as a child John had a high self esteem because of his father. John B broke down many barriers for his son to be included in all aspects of society. John B Kemp was a pioneer for all people with disabilites. A widower, he raised three remarkable children and was the most gracious man I have ever known.

  • My husband and I enjoyed reading this very comprehensive article about John Kemp. His father was a true visionary and pushed John to achieve. He did it with love and compassion and John, in turn, now has devoted his life and career to champion the cause of people with disabilities.
