As a Rick Hansen Ambassador, I will share Rick’s message of Access for All while I weave in my story of recovery and perseverance. Life does change in the blink of an eye and we all need to be ready.
I started writing after being hit by a car and before I left the trauma unit – and I have not stopped since. Blogging about my recovery has been therapeutic and now I hope to write to help those who find themselves in the same situation – there is not a lot of info about recovering from a spinal cord injury and I want to change that.
Accessibility, Sharing the Road, and helping others with spinal cord injuries have become a passion for me now. I have brought StopGap to Huron County and am working to help new construction and renovation projects in the county be accessible to everyone. Cycling in Huron County is changing as drivers learn how to share the road and cyclists learn to follow the rules of the road and make themselves visible.
