Biography :

Curtis was a professional bull rider, from Minburn, Alberta, Canada. Curtis was in a rodeo accident 16 years ago. That took away his ability to walk, talk or move his left arm. Curtis’s will, inner strength and drive have propelled him to still be making a miraculous recovery. Beyond what the health professionals, family and friends ever imagined! Curtis spent a week short of a year in therapy. Curtis is here to share his powerful and inspiring story, giving others a new outlook on life. In Curtis’s mind, there is no such thing as “I Can’t”.
