Stronger Every Day

You're a parent or caretaker of someone with disabilities. It's crazy hard, but you can handle all the challenges that come your way, and Bo Bigelow will show you how.  Bo Bigelow is the father and primary caretaker of Tess, age 14, who has a rare genetic disorder that causes nonverbal autism, communication disorders, and epilepsy. Bo is an award-winning speaker, writer, filmmaker, and advocate for people with disabilities. He is also a practicing disability-rights attorney. Whether speaking up for Tess's education, navigating appointments and insurance coverage, or simply making Tess seen and known, he's developed tons of actionable tips to help you crush it and get it all done, without losing your own sanity and identity.   Bo is a co-founder of DISORDER: The Rare Disease Film Festival and The Disorder Channel. Over the years, he's told Tess's story to NPR, NBC News, ABC News, The Washington Post, and The Atlantic.
