Gus Has a Huge Heart

Florida -- Gus Egerer is a fun-loving person with a heart the size of a tank - someone who shares his will of steel with other disabled folks, according to

Gus says the folks at the Cerebral Palsy center in Jacksonville are his heroes. They call Gus their hero.

Mr Egerer is a black belt in karate, something he achieved after losing an arm. Now he teaches folks with disabilities how to fight back and defend themselves.

Years after losing his arm in an acident, he severely hurt his back in a fall. Now he gets a morphine-like painkiller through a pump implanted under his skin. Even so, he hurts just about every day.
