BALTIMORE — Joni Eareckson Tada was born in 1949 in Baltimore and lived a very active life (riding horses, hiking, tennis and swimming) all through her growing up years. Then on July 30, 1967, after misjudging the shallowness of the water, she dove into the Chesapeake Bay, broke her spine, and became paralyzed from the shoulders down. During occupational therapy, she learned to paint with a brush between her teeth and began selling her artwork. She also learned to write this way, but now uses voice recognition software.
