Cleo Barney cooks sausages at his Waukegan, Ill., apartment, built especially for those with disabilities. Barney was paralyzed in a 2005 attack. "A lot of people don't give people in a chair a chance to do anything," he said. "It's like, 'Oh, you've got a sad life.' But it's not that way. It's what you make of it."
