Scott Crane is a food lover! A food blogger and author of a cookbook for charity, Mr. Crane also volunteers as a mentor to children and adults with disabilities.
Crane was diagnosed with a rare form of the disease called centronuclear myopathy at the age of 4, causing him to be confined to a wheelchair. That has not stopped him to pursue his passion for all things relating to food or cooking.
Upon graduation from Glenbrook North High School, he attended community college, volunteered at the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago and worked at the Corner Bakery Cafe in Northbrook, Illinois.
Mr. Crane was introduced to food therapy while in hospice in 2010 and looks forward to it every week. He believes having something to look forward to, particularly something you love and can learn to do better, can heal you. On May 3, 2011 Crane was awarded the 2011 Robert Ross Muscular Dystrophy Association Personal Achievement Award for the state of Illinois.
