Description

KEYNOTE SPEAKER: Ward ‘Scar Man’ Foley

“We are not given a good life or a bad life. We are given life. And it’s up to us to make it good or bad.”

Ward Foley was born with multiple birth defects and very little chance to live. But he did, only to undergo decades of surgery, agonizing rehabilitation, ridicule, and humiliation. He was also severely burned in a deep fryer, beat up, and almost killed by a drunk driver.

"Ward Foley deserves the highest commendation for his leadership role in his work with hospice and his help for so many people around the country who struggle with illness, disability, and other life challenges. His work is a critical contribution to this community." Kathleen Sebelius, Governor of Kansas
