Door to Door | Movie | Bill Porter

I had heard people talk about the movie Door to Door and recently came across a post at the Mawhinney blog,   reviewing the movie. I was impressed!  Bill Porter was born with cerebral palsy and against all odds became the top salesman for the Watkins company.  So I did a search in Wikipedia to corroborate the facts and this is what I found:
“Porter had been told for many years that he was not employable, but he threw all of his effort into working as a salesman for Watkins. Despite the pain of his medical condition, he would walk eight to ten miles a day to meet his customers. Porter has been able to support himself, and continued to work as a salesman at the age of 69 at the time of the film’s showing.”

At the age of 76 Mr. Porter is still working; you can visit him on the web.
