Gretchen Ryan is an accomplished artist who has been living with paralysis as the result of a catastrophic accident at the age of 16, when she was passenger in a Jeep that lost control and flew off a mountain cliff. She sustained multiple injuries, and suffered damage to her spinal nerves during a subsequent surgery, leaving her with paralysis and unable to walk.

She makes her circumstances look much easier than they are though, and this campaign was created to make changes in Gretchen’s life that will drastically improve its quality.
