You Can Help Me Continue to Heal

I am having a miraculous recovery from a brain and spinal cord illness/injury that caused paralysis and damage to my brain that has all my doctors speechless. They can’t believe I’m walking again, let alone ski instructing and going to law school. All of this has been incredibly hard emotionally and I never thought I could bear that much physical pain, but thankfully, it has subsided. Brad, Devon and my Mom truly saved me and cared for me daily until I could take care of myself.

Hoping to start physical therapy at a therapeutic horseback riding center right near us some time this year. It’s not covered by insurance, but it’s supposed to be really helpful and fun for people with my kind of injuries.

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.
