Heart of a Lion: Our Journey of Faith and Courage

by Willie & Brenda Burton with Barry Kienzle

An inspiring story of overcoming life's hardships through faith and courage. Willie Burton was born with cerebral palsy. He suffered through painful surgeries and endless physical therapy sessions throughout his youth, but his spirit and determination never wavered despite his disabilities. With the support of this adoptive mother, he signed up for the wrestling team at Fairdale High School where he was accepted by the team as an equal, later gaining national attention for his perseverance in order to win a single match on the mat.
