Craig Mattice is one of my heroes. A few years ago he was training for Hawaii's Ironman Triathlon when he noticed a numbness in his legs. He was diagnosed with a debilitating condition that weakened him, makes it difficult to regulate his body temperature and caused a brainstem stroke. Craig lives his life to the fullest. He is an indomitable spirit, a delight to be around, an instant friend to strangers, a magnet of encouragement.
