It's been 6 years since I sustained my spinal cord injury, and I am asking and reaching out for support in this next step on my journey of taking back my life.
I'm updating this page in gratitude for the many changes that have taken form in my life since I first made this fund.....
I am now married and living in the beautiful state of Michigan! My husband has a job he loves with Ford as an engineer working on the electric vehicles. I've been getting used to the new climate and have been searching for new jobs and ways to get out and meet the community! I sold my minivan in FL before moving so now I am back on a mission to create an accessible and safe vehicle that will be better equipped for the roads here and the SNOW of course!
I recently decided to have a major surgery to alter the way I manage my bladder and I am currently healing and recovering. The future is bright and full of greater quality of life. It will take at least 2-3 months to make the transition and start learning my new body. Over the year I will get better with a new and improved bladder!
Although Spinal Cord Injury is physically challenging and a daily emotional struggle full of will power training and controlling my attention.... I'm learning valuable lessons every day!!!
I am so grateful for any amount you feel you can contribute. Thank you for the support and Thank you from my heart to yours. =) Love, Laurie
