Glenda Watson Hyatt, author of 'I’ll Do It Myself,' and known as the ‘Left Thumb Blogger,’ has cerebral palsy. She has dreamed of climbing the steps of the Philadelphia Museum of Art just as Sylvester Stallone did in the movie Rocky. Summiting the steps has become symbolic of overcoming obstacles of all kinds. For Glenda, who is unable to walk without support, the climb will be a mental AND physical accomplishment.
Below is the wish she posted on social helping website Wish Upon a Hero (see wish here):
'My wish is to climb the steps at the Philadelphia Museum of Arts in the spirit of Rocky Balboa - like in the movie "Rocky.” I will need assistance in accomplishing this feat. A team of one makes this adventure possible; a team of two would be better support when summiting the stairs; a team of three means a Scooter Wrangler to drive my scooter around to the top of the stairs; a team of four means an Official Photographer and Social Media Liaison.'
From Glenda’s wish posting two authors of Rocky themed books answered her call for onsite support, Felice Cantatore, of Rocky Spirit, the Rocky Balboa connection to Success and Mike Kunda, Cue the Rocky Music. Kunda is a Rocky Balboa impersonator.
