Way to go lead trail guide – we enjoy your guidance on this foggy, muddy and weedy crooked path – together we add light and blazes to this trail.

R.J. FORMANEK – DAY 2 – RED SHOES ROCK – 90 REAL PEOPLE – REAL LIVES

My story: RJ was refused at birth, raised by family and later social services, left home at 15, had numerous jobs, became photojournalist and now writes, speaks and educates about living with FASD.

Strengths: RJ is energetic, positive and always seeking to share a smile or a hug… Remaining positive in the face of negatives to find a better way.

Struggles: Diagnosed with PFAS (Partial FAS) RJ struggles with short term, or working memory, has some physical issues due to the FAS and is currently working on getting more than five hours sleep a night.

RJ’s Wish: That others need not experience what I and so many others have gone through because FASD is not understood; that by bringing light to the subject we can improve the chances, and the lives of so many others.
