What Is An Apple A Day?
An Apple A Day" began as a website known as "Famous Apple", dedicated to trying to form an interactive community between people who became disabled while going about their daily lives. The creator of this site, Jimmy Apple, came up with the name "Famous Apple" because that was the nickname, he gave to his little nephew, Mike, who's first word was "Apple"! In fact, instead of calling Jimmy "Uncle Jimmy" for a while, he referred to him as "Uncle Apple" and Jimmy called him his "Famous Apple".
“Famous Apple” began to take almost immediately as far as visits to the site went and e-mails from people who were suddenly finding themselves hurt and/or disabled from work and non-work-related accidents came in. They were facing things like hospitals, doctors, insurance companies, managers, company owners, lawyers, money problems, worker’s comp, insurance, Social Security Disability and so on and so on…. As well, they were facing personal crisis, anxiety, depression, self-doubt, guilt, and just about every other emotion you can think of. And, as everyone knows, friends and family are full of the best intentions when a loved one is hurting and their
priority, most of the time is to remove that pain`.
The problem there is, most, while meaning well, have NO EXPERIENCE with the problems at hand and that lack of experience, in some cases, can do much more harm than good. “Famous Apple” began getting questions from readers who were finding themselves in need of help navigating through fun house of mirrors that can be the disability and rehabilitation systems. Having someone who has already been through it and can tell you what to expect is much more settling than listening to someone who has not and only to find out they gave you the wrong advice. This is where “Famous Apple” came in. We are the friend who has already been through the system for many years and has access to others
Since November 2017, “AN APPLE A DAY” has been DOWNLOADED THOUSANDS (1000’S) OF TIMES AND HEARD IN Seventy-Four (74) COUNTRIES. The
