LOCKPORT, N.Y. -- Destiny Constantin depends on a power chair to get around. She's had limited mobility since she was diagnosed with a rare bone disease, called Blount's at age 2.
"We started with the braces, that didn't work. Around 8 or 9 she had two titanium staples placed in her knee," said Destiny's father John Constantin.
Eventually those staples were taken out, and her disease progressed.
"With her in the chair, I have to basically lift her up to transfer her from the car to the bed to the bathroom," said John Constantin.
Everyday is a journey, and it's what inspired this father daughter duo to write and publish 2 childrens books, called "A Journey with Dad." It tells a fictional story, but paints a real picture of what it's like to live with limited mobility.
Destiny Constantin said, "Ever since this book came out people have asked me to do a whole bunch of speeches, fight for disability rights."
Destiny's father said, "If somebody's in a power chair thinking that they can't do nothing, well guess what? You can do something if you put your mind to it.
With determination and help from a loving dad, the books are available on Amazon and at Barnes & Noble.
"I didn't think I would be the person I am in a wheel chair if it wasn't for my parents or my best friend. I have the best family I could ever ask for," said Destiny.
It's likely Destiny, now 20, will have limited mobility for the rest of her life. But it certainly won't stop her from moving towards her dreams of publishing more books in the future.
"Everything I go through is a challenge but I'm not giving up," said Destiny.
