Wade McCrae Washington is no stranger to overcoming seemingly insurmountable odds.

After being diagnosed with cerebral palsy at just 11 months old, doctors didn't expect the young boy to live past the age of 10. At 12 years old, he was given another life-altering diagnosis: severe scoliosis. From a young age, Washington had big dreams of becoming a bodybuilder. Others told him to give up, but he kept working toward his goal.

With the help of his friend and personal trainer, he was able to find a way to live his dream. After years of training, Washington proudly displays his professional bodybuilding card.
