Donald Beyette was born in 1949 with Holt Oram syndrome. He never let the slight inconvenience of being born different stop him from living in normal life.
In 2001 he was crushed in the muffler shop that he owned between a pickup truck and a concrete wall ending his working days as a auto and truck mechanic.
I think getting over my physical deformity from birth prepared me for the seven years and seven operations it would take for me to get over this accident.
In between operations and therapy he worked on developing Grab-A-Cane TM and bought himself a Honda rebel motorcycle astonishing his friends and neighbors by riding it. He has competed in three world AYYA yoyo competitions and he also donates his time to the Shriners and performs as Puppets the clown at the Flint and Saginaw, Michigan Shrine Circus.
Grab-A-Cane TM is a Grabber and a Cane that is adjustable and readjustable in one handy lightweight aluminum and stainless steel unit.
The grabber handle is in easy reach of your fingertips while still maintaining a firm grip on the cane. The rubber coated aluminum finger will easily pick up your car keys, pill bottle, napkin or an item on a grocery shelf.
My goal is to provide jobs for disabled veterans and the mentally handicapped and to send children born with Holt Oram syndrome to college.
The company motto is:
Designed by the Handicapped for the Handicapped, That's why it works!
