Hello all,

I thought it was about time to chime in personally to let you all know how I’ve been doing and how much I appreciate everyone’s support.

This past year and change has without a doubt, been the hardest time in my life. Since my initial injury, my entire life has been completely turned upside down. Because I’ve lost the ability to walk and use my fingers, I’ve had to relearn how to do virtually everything from using my phone, to brushing my teeth, to scratching an itch. Every task in my life has become a challenge, and it’s hard to fathom how much I took for granted before the injury.

In fact, the more I think about it the more I realize how hard it is to even talk about. The changes in my life are just so comprehensive that I don’t really even know where to start.

Without a doubt the most positive thing that has come out of all of this is the outpouring of support and love from family and friends. There is no way I could’ve gotten to this point without all of you. I can’t really even express properly how much I appreciate all of your support, but I just want to say from the bottom of my heart, thank you, thank you, thank you.

One last thing I wanted to mention for now—another good thing that has come out of all this is that I have rediscovered one of my latent passions: art. Before the injury I was creative at work creating interfaces for apps and websites, but now since things have changed I’ve had to get “creative” so to speak and find a new outlet for my energy, and I am fortunate enough to still be able to use my hands to draw and paint. Despite everything that I am going through, when I am doing art, all is right with the world.

It brings me joy to create and share my art with my friends, family, and the world. It is my hope that by sharing my art, I can spread awareness about spinal cord injuries and what is still possible with the right attitude, and of course, love and support from all of you.

I will be posting some of the art on this site but also on my Patreon on page. Here is a link to check it out:

This is HORRIBLE! We are facing the same issues with my husband’s brain cancer! Only difference? Nobody has done ANYTHING to help us out. In fact, I was UNFRIENDED for my political opinions.
