I am having a miraculous recovery from paralysis, but need much more medical treatment. I have had medical insurance throughout, but a lot of my specialized treatment isn’t covered, like certain life-saving medications and specialized physical therapy. I still can’t believe that I have survived 4 potentially fatal disorders that struck all at the same time, but I’m determined to make my recovery worthwhile. Please sign my guestbook to say hi and if you can afford to, please make a donation. Our funds are really limited while I’m unable to work and while Brad is recovering from his own workplace injury back in Nov 2017. He’s having surgery in May and won’t be back to work full time Summer 2018. To learn more about what happened with my strange and rare illness and equally rare recovery, read on.

Back in December of 2016 or so, I got a super awesome message from some amazing supporters! One I’ve never even met! They are none other than…Scott Barber, who filmed, directed and edited some Public Service Announcements for my breastfeeding advocacy work and his bud, Kevin Pearce, former professional snowboarding champion who surpassed his rival Shaun White until a horrific crash left him with a Traumatic Brain Injury. Kevin is the subject of the documentary, The Crash Reel – and co-founder of where I’ve done some great yoga with other brain injury folks – Scott told Kevin about me and they sent this! I used it to get me through the worst of the physical therapy, knowing how much Kevin has gone through.

TREADMILL PLANKS – Wow, check this exercise out. I learned it from Alyssa, my Spinal Cord Recovery Specialist at Project Walk, in Stratham, NH. I have come a long way from not being able to move in bed or cut my own food! Almost 2.5 years out now! This is me at the Vermont Law School fitness center.
