STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. - Sept. 29, 2019 - PRLog -- Eric Sogomonian will be walking through Staten Island, from the St. George ferry terminal to the Conference house in Tottenville. Once that is done, he returns to the Staten Island Mall. So, what is the big deal? Eric was born with Limbgurtle muscular dystrophy. Limb-girdle muscular dystrophy is a term for a group of diseases that cause weakness and wasting of the muscles in the arms and legs.  People who met Eric often treated him differently, as an outsider because of this disease. Eric felt invisible. People around him looked at the disease had rather than the person he was.

Many around Eric told him that he will not achieve many goals. However, Eric was destined to make a difference.  Influenced by the attitudes around him, Eric let himself s believe that the others were correct. Eric has worked hard to disprove perceptions of him. He discovered that he was capable of amazing accomplishments and other peoples opinions do not reflect his abilities. Intelligence is generally unaffected in limb-girdle muscular dystrophy.  Eric believes that no one should be told they "Can't. He has learned from his experience that he can make a difference and help to prevent others who suffer the way he did. Eric Believe that a person's life is theirs and nobody else's." He says "Do what you want, what you can."

Eric Sogomonian has been told that "He can't" his whole life.  Eric wants to prove that the word "can't" is nothing more than a mental dampener. He believes that if you keep hearing negativity, you'll start to believe it and stop doing things you love. If you don't push yourself, you will never know what you can achieve.

Both the walk and the Q&A/talk are happening on October 5th, 2019. Eric will leave his home 12:15 AM. At the end there will be a Q&A/talk 8 pm at Ono Bowls (, 2655 Richmond Avenue, Staten Island Mall, Staten Island, NY.

Eric Sogomonian shows those who define others by limitations that they are wrong. Once you have goals set you CAN accomplish them.  "#DELETETHEWORDCANT".
