'I Never Wanted To Burden People': He Won't Let His Injury Define Him

Tommy Parrish received a debilitating injury at a young age, but he doesn’t see himself as disabled. He and his daughter Kathryn Thomas came to the StoryCorps mobile booth to talk about the lessons they have both learned from Tommy’s injury.

This story was produced for KOSU by Rachel Hubbard and Dustin Drew, with interviews recorded at the StoryCorps mobile booth in Oklahoma City in early 2018. Locally recorded stories air Wednesdays during Morning Edition and All Things Considered on KOSU.

Thank you to Phillips Murrah law firm for sponsoring StoryCorps' visit to Oklahoma City.
