Tony Bartoli was born on July 12, 1970 in eastern Pennsylvania. He weighed only 3 lbs and 4 ozs and was 14 inches long. He was born two months premature with the condition known as Cerebral Palsy. CP struck the left side of his body affecting his coordination. Doctors told his mother, Linda, "Tony will never walk!"



In spite of great odds against him, and contrary to then-established medical opinions, Tony would learn to walk through the help of family, friends, and, especially, God. Tony's personal journey and testimony is an inspiring message of hope, encouragement and perseverance.

Now, Tony travels around the country now sharing his inspiring message with young people. His message is especially relevant to today's bully-culture found in nearly every school in America.
