FROM TRAGEDY TO TRIUMPH is his story of perseverance over a heartbreaking circumstance as incomprehensible as it is seemingly insurmountable. Amputated up to his hipbones and told he would never walk again, John did not give up on life. Instead, he rose to do what others said he could not. Walking, running, competing, but most importantly living, he proved to them what he had always known- his disability did not define him; he defined his disability.
Sharing his journey, insight, and perspective will help:
- How you think about yourself
- How you approach problems
- How you manage expectations and achieve your goals
From those with mobility issues who need to be reminded that living an independent life is possible to the athletes who need to push and challenge themselves that much more and everyone in between, FROM TRAGEDY TO TRIUMPH can positively impact your life.

About the Author
Andrew Chapin always dreamed of being a published author, working tirelessly to hone his craft and realize this goal. In 2010, John Tartaglio offered him the break he was looking for-a chance to develop a book about John's life, an idea that eventually spawned FROM TRAGEDY TO TRIUMPH. Andrew, who majored in English and graduated from Fairfield University in 2009, recently completed his MS in adolescent English education at Iona College. He currently teaches middle school English at Thornton-Donovan School in New Rochelle, NY. Thankful for the family and friends who have enabled him to pursue his passion, Andrew looks forward to the boundless possibilities that lie ahead.
