"Anything You Want To Do Is Possible"

Posted: Updated:

(KCRA) A 20-year-old quadriplegic man in Sacramento, California is expressing his creativity by creating paintings using only his mouth.

Jordan Soto first took up painting as a hobby during his recovery from a devastating electrical accident in Mexico. He was just 8 years old when electrical wires shocked him, leaving him without working arms or legs.
