Because he was born with osteogenesis imperfecta, Stephenson stands three feet tall, has fragile bones, and must use a wheelchair.
Sean Clinch Stephenson (born May 5, 1979) is an American therapist, self-help author and motivational speaker.When Stephenson was born, doctors quickly recognized the signs of the genetic disorder osteogenesis imperfecta, commonly known as "brittle bone disease". Most of his bones had been broken during the delivery. He was placed in intensive care at Chicago Children's Hospital, and doctors warned his parents that he might die very soon. He survived, but spent much of his youth in pain and experienced the stunted growth and mobility limitations common for people with osteogenesis imperfecta.
Despite all these he choose a life of strength, never to give up, never to let his limitations limit him. Today he is a successful motivational speaker and author.
So far, he has authored two(2) books:
He is happily married to Mindle Kniss
- How You(th) Can Succeed!: Transforming Dreams into Reality for Young Adults (2001)
- Get Off Your "But": How to End Self-Sabotage and Stand Up for Yourself (2009)
