"Life on Your Terms" Since graduating in 1990 from Penn State with a BA in speech communications and for the past 15 years, Bill has led a busy and active life. He’s had a very successful professional career as a senior manager at two Fortune 500 Companies first with MBNA and then Bank of America. In 2007 he left Bank of America to become a professional motivational speaker and start his own business, Bill Cawley Consulting, which helps companies and individuals reach their maximum potential. In 1999, he founded “Family and Friends Curing Paralysis‚” a not-for-profit foundation, which to date has raised more than $700,000. Married with three small children, Bill enjoys most of all spending time with his kids going to the park, doing puzzles and spending the summer with them on the Jersey Shore. Bill and his wife maintain an active social life and keep up with a very large network of friends and family members who they see regularly. In short, Bill is just like you and me. With one exception‚ĶBill has accomplished all of these things (and many more) as a quadriplegic. Paralyzed from the chest down with limited use of his hands, Bill has been confined to a wheelchair since 1992 when he dove off a pier and broke his neck. So Bill’s had a lot to deal with these past 15 years. But his story isn’t really about his accident. Instead, it’s about how he regained his life on his terms, despite the accident.
