Anthony was born in Johannesburg in 1975 before moving to Cape Town with his family in 1990. Anthony was a promising sportsman with cricket being the sport that he excelled at. In 1992 at the age of 16 years old Anthony was traveling home from a get together with his friends in the back of an open bakkie when it left the road and rolled. Anthony took the full weight of the vehicle on his neck which resulted in him dislocating his fourth vertebrae and severing his spinal cord.
Anthony returned home to live with his parents but due to circumstances and not being aware of what his rights were he was unable to complete his schooling. While at home Anthony lived a very sheltered life and hardly ever went out. Anthony was looked after by a part-time carer and his aging parents who found it physically more and more difficult to see to Anthony’s needs. In 2002 Anthony moved into The Centre and has not looked back.
With the support of The Centre and he was able to attend to Technicon where he completed a course in entrepreneurship. Anthony has developed his public speaking skills and has spoken at numerous schools, churches and large corporations.
