I was told I would never walk again. But I decided to defeat the odds. I’m Chris Norton, and I unlocked the Power to Stand. You have that power, too.

Whether I’m inspiring people to change their lives, or helping them access recovery resources through my foundation, my purpose is to help others overcome any challenge they face. Life isn’t about getting knocked down – it’s about getting back up.

Stand in the face of adversity. Stand for an idea. Stand to empower the world.


In the Face of Adversity. For an Idea. to Empower the World.

My book is about achieving the impossible and how I turned tragedy into triumph with the help of my family and friends. Written with my father Terry Norton, The Power of Faith is the story of how I went from never being able to move again, to walking across the stage at college graduation.

I hope this book redefines your outlook on adversity, strength and resilience. If there’s one thing I’ve learned, it’s that we all have the Power to Stand.
