"In the fall of 2014, I (@graciefish_) was what you'd consider a normal high school Senior. My passions resided in piano, guitar and cello and I was planning to attend Berklee college of music. However on December 21 this was all cut short. I began to feel pain in my neck and tingling in my hands and in a matter of minutes I was paralyzed. I was diagnosed with Acute Flaccid Myelitis (a rare polio-like illness found in kids). Music and art became my saving grace. Music came back into my life in the form of songwriting, and I took up mouth painting. The arts proved to be a powerful force, providing a continuum of who I was, who I am now, and who I will always be. Soon after returning home from rehab I started the Grace Fisher Foundation. My goal in starting this foundation is to bring the healing touch of art therapy to other children living with a disability. I believe we have the choice to remain slaves to our past expectations or we can be pioneers and embrace new possibilities."

"Hadley Larsen (@hadleysoi_adventure) was born in November 2012. She was diagnosed with a rare genetic disorder called Osteogenesis Imperfecta, or brittle bone disease. Hadley’s newest fracture #88 happened only a few weeks ago, but that wasn’t going to stop her from trying to surf with her dad. As her mom, I can honestly say I was scared and so worried for Hadley. I just kept thinking, all it will take is a single crash and she’s going to have multiple broken bones. I kept questioning why Eric and I are letting Hadley try this.... On the other hand we both really try not to place any kind of limits on her and what she can do and try. I was just hoping and praying she would decide not to try to surf with her dad. I felt a sigh of relief when she came over to me and told me she was nervous right before she entered the water. I thought for sure this meant she wasn’t going to do it, I even tried to talk her out of it... However, Hadley assured me that she really WANTED to surf, and that she was just a little nervous.. So Hadley did surf broken foot and all!!! She loved it and even did it twice."

Perfectly said:

I am that mom
The one with that child
And when you look up
I see your fake smile

You don't say a word
Your eyes give you away
I've seen it before
"I'm sorry..." they say

For you see a burden
An unfortunate fate
Where I see a gift
And the hearts that have changed

You've not been a witness
When I've shed happy tears
Over every small milestone
And each conquered fears

You've not seen the beauty
Of the journey, fought hard
We began with so little 
But we've traveled so far

It's an uphill battle
But it's worth every step
Would I do it again?
My answer is yes

I am that mom
And this is my child
And she is so much more
Than the label you've filed

Please give her a chance
It's the least you can do
And I won't be surprised
When she wins your heart too 💖

Borrowed words but yes !! this is what I see and feel x #smilesforbrookie #mylittlecpwarrior #cerebralpalsy #impossibleisnothing #cerebralpalsyawareness #nonverbal #inclusion #yoocandoanything #smile #model #kidmodel #specialneeds #inspire

Imagine traveling to another continent where you don’t know the area or even the language. Now imagine doing that with just $20 to your name.
.
That’s what one family is currently doing as you’re reading this just so their child with SMA can receive a lifesaving treatment that isn’t obtainable in their country. Since hearing about this family, I think about them often. I marvel at their strength for uprooting their lives because they knew their child’s well-being depended on it. I pray they find financial help to afford groceries each week. And I think about how remarkably different this young child’s life is going to be because his family chose to show up for something- without hesitation- because they knew their lives would be forever changed.
.
Why am I telling you this? Just as that family has demonstrated, in order to make an impactful change, you must first be willing to show up. Regardless of what may stand in your way. Change doesn’t only have to happen in grand gestures. In fact, the most groundbreaking changes happen in the culmination of the littlest victories.
.
Yesterday, Working On Walking wrapped up its final fundraising event of the year here at New England Country Club. And, with that, I want to say thank you for showing up. For yesterday, today, and always.
.
Because of all the movers and shakers in the SMA community who decided to show up, stories of hope and promise are now narrating the future of SMA. They’re filling the pages with children who are now walking, breathing better, gaining stamina, and so much more. All because of people who showed👏🏼up👏🏼 before them and continue to do so.
.
Can you imagine that? 💛

Happy Saturday Friends!! Today I started my new journaling routine, and I’m reading a book called Make it Happen by Lara Casey( scroll to see the cover)! In  the beginning of the book she  asks you to write something down that’s been holding you back or that you’re afraid of. I wrote down that I’m worried about people seeing my disability before they see me and the work I can do.  I know that this happens more often than it should , and I know that it just means that I have to work harder. I feel like having this blog and meeting the amazing people that I have met through it plus the support of my family and friends has helped me to realize that this idea allows me to have an opportunity to show people that yes I have a disability, but look what I can do! So if you have any of these thoughts know that you are NOT alone !!

What a year! Two hospitalizations. Heartbreak. Pneumonia. Shingles. Criminal summons. Setbacks, but a finished (and almost edited) manuscript. So these are tears of joy and melancholy, working on my TEDx talk, listening to Miriam Makeba! My dad sure left me a legacy. I've seen her three times; Carnegie Hall 1988 for my September 20th bday, then Amsterdam and Rotterdam in the 90's. Miriam is a guiding light, while writing books and comedy from my hospital bed. Her music makes me feel a lot less lonely. 🌠

Meet Bridget ( @bridge_007 ). When she was 10 years old, she was hit by a car while horseback riding. Her horse, and her left leg, didn't make it. But that hasn't stopped her from pursuing her passion for riding horses, and living her life to the fullest. "I hope my story can inspire you to never give up on what you love!" You've definitely inspired us, Bridget. ❤️ via @yoocandoanything

Meet Bridget ( @bridge_007 ). When she was 10 years old, she was hit by a car while horseback riding. Her horse, and her left leg, didn't make it. But that hasn't stopped her from pursuing her passion for riding horses, and living her life to the fullest. "I hope my story can inspire you to never give up on what you love!" You've definitely inspired us, Bridget. ❤️ via @yoocandoanything . . . . . #myhealthline  #yoocandoanything  #amputee  #amputeelife  #amputeegirl  #horseriding  #barrelracer  #inspiration  #dedicated  #dreams  #goals  #nevergiveup  #iamadaptive  #loveyourself 
В кадре осень 🍁
Кто бы что не говорил, а я осень люблю, особенно сентябрь, солнечный и сухой, яркий, многоцветный и по-особенному уютный... Когда можно надеть любимое пальто, накрутить теплый шарф и взяв с собой на всякий случай перчатки, отправиться на неспешную прогулку в какой-нибудь волшебный лес или парк. А ещё взять с собой друзей и фотоаппарат! Ведь осенью получаются такие красивые, эмоциональные и теплые кадры... Цвета листвы, травы, оставшихся цветов, осенней воды и даже воздуха...
Я очень скучаю по таким прогулкам...

I drive a wheelchair adapted vehicle, which looks like a spaceship, and people are forever staring! My disability hasn't stopped me from doing a single thing & I believe if you want to do something, get up and do it. I haven't got time to feel sorry for myself.

from @allanlimass -  Um dia falaram que eu já era, que tudo acabou, que eu estava perdido, que Deus me abandonou, que eu estava paralisado para sempre, que não teria motivos para viver contente, que não suportaria a carga e o fardo, que meu mundo seria amargo, que todos os meus sonhos se perderiam e que todos me abandonariam.
.
Mas Deus olhou pra mim e disse: "Filho, neste mundo tereis aflições, mas tende bom ânimo, eu venci o mundo."
.
Hoje tenho fé e crença, que vou fazer a diferença, neste mundo de tanta agonia, trarei alegria aos que precisam da tua presença.

"With the pressure of social media and advertising, finding peace with your own body can be hard enough, let alone with a stoma. I (@mrcolitiscrohns) am now confident in my own skin, but coming to terms with a major body adaptation has been really hard at times.I’ve learnt you shouldn’t base your worth on what some deem ‘attractive’ - the problem is not with you and your body, it’s with society. I’ve learnt to respect my body and I refuse to be ashamed when the alternative was so awful. My stoma has given me a better quality of life and I’ve learnt to embrace it. It’s all about perspective.

"My name is Dasha (@tada_danae) and live in San Diego, CA. In 2008 while I was in college, I decided to participate in spring break activities. While traveling to Florida on spring break, the person who was driving lost control and the vehicle overturned 6 times. I was ejected out of the car & the car was completely totaled. I had to be airlifted to the hospital. My injuries were pretty bad, which resulted in the amputation of my right leg. I have had 9 surgeries and 6 blood transfusions since the accident.

I took a hiatus from college due to depression from the wreck, but eventually went back and finished school. I am now a two-time college graduate. There were so many times when I felt alone. Although it may seem like the end of the world, you have to keep fighting and progressing forward in life. Don't let your doubt and insecurities keep you from pursuing what you want to do in life.

“It looks like a foot”
-
“Why did you chop your fingers off?”
-
“Do you need a special keyboard? Because we have tight budget and don’t want to spend it on things like that”
-
“At least I can do this” *flips me off with both hands*
-
“But your so beautiful” *as if people with body differences can not also be beautiful* -
“It looks weird”
-
“I don’t want to hold that hand”
-
“Gross, I don’t want to touch it”
-
“Can I touch it?”
-
“Well, I guess you can play house with us, but you have to be the cat because your hand looks like a paw”
-
“We don’t want to play with you”
-
“You have a Barbie hand”
-
“It’s not like this is anything anyone wants”
-
“How did you even get this job?”
-
“Monster. Deformed. Abnormal.”
-
“You can’t” -
These are some of the words that have been said to my face throughout my life. I allowed them to be daggers tearing my self-esteem, self-confidence, and self-worth to shreds, why? Because I believed them as truth.
-
For the sociologists out there, Goffman’s Social Stigma Theory has a component stating that those with physical differences have all of their insecurities publicly examined and scrutinized. They are socially placed into an “out-of-group” category with a variety of made up social limitations based on the “normal’s” ideas of what people can and can not do. -
-
That is exactly what happened. It was if these statements and my hand surpassed everything else about me. I was left into a socially limited group and made a home there.
-
After a few years of self-awareness through millions of “why is this happening? And why do I feel this way?” type questions, all I can do now is laugh! I have transformed the once destructive daggers into nothingness. I have liberated myself from these limitations- why? Because they are made up social rules!! Which means we can re-write them! -
-
We have the power to choose the words that define us. -
We also have the power to choose the words that use to define others. -

Here’s to a more inclusive society! Here’s to redefining normal! Words have power, use them with mindfulness awareness and intention.” @aerials.and.airplanes #yoocandoanything #luckyfinprojec

2 weeks ago, we went to our appointment @shrinershospitalstl to do a routine check up for the first time in a month. The doctors & therapist surprised us with news of concern over Noah’s knee and flexibly that he was severely lacking. They told us to increase physical therapy to 3 times a week & insisted that we unlock his knee a couple times a day and work on bending, straighten & walking to increase is flexibility & mobility. We were pretty discouraged bc Noah’s knee had already become such a battle during therapy at home. His pain was excruciating & he was terrified of walking with his knee unlocked.
Well, here we are 2 weeks later and we have increased his bending & straightening significantly & he is now walking in that unlocked knee more and more.
I am incredibly impressed by the Nate Waters Physical Therapy Clinic at @tulsacommunitycollege & the amazing care we have received there. We love our therapist, Danielle & couldn’t have pushed Noah this far without her!

I really think this picture shows how easy it is to put forward a fake image of yourself on social media. It looks like I’m reading this book and like I’m super engrossed in it right? In reality it’d have to be almost touching my nose for me to see it and actually be able to read it. This also shows how visual impairments and blindness are invisible disabilities that people actually know very little about! ❁

Yesterday I went to get my wedding dress at @rkbridal in NYC!
_
When I got seen by my wonderful consultant, we asked if they ever had anyone in a wheelchair before. She said no but they were excited about it!
_
My wedding dress was the first dress I tried on! I still tried on others to get different feelings but still went with the first!
_
Trying dresses on, let alone wedding dresses in a wheelchair and breathing machine is not that easy!
_
I had my sister, my mom, my aunt, and my best friend all in one room helping me! We were all yelling, cursing (jokingly) at each other, and laughing but it was fun even though we were literally sweating with how hot it got in that dressing room 😂
_
So yes, having a spinal cord injury isn't easy but it still doesn't stop me from getting my wedding dress!

"The moment I (@faceluke) saw Luke I knew that he had a little something extra. He was a beautiful baby boy with no life threatening illness unlike some of the poor babies around him. Luke wouldn’t be Luke if he didn’t have Down syndrome. Most of our challenges with Luke do not lie directly with Luke but more with how society sees him. It is so exhausting at times trying to remind people that Luke is just a little boy. He is not always happy, he loves balls and blocks and pretending to be a monster to chase his sister, Julia. He takes the scenic route to things like crawling, walking, talking but he always gets there. We have set up "FACE" to support young adults with Down syndrome to get into further education, employment or training programs. Luke has heard the word ‘can’t’ often in his life, he wants to show that in fact he CAN do anything! Keep following Luke at faceluke.com and share to help us show the world that a person who has a different genetic makeup deserves to live and live well."

On 14 October I ventured out again on my Invacare sponsored TopEnd Force 3 handcycle on another training ride towards this year’s ASB Auckland Marathon, allowing wheelchair athletes to compete for the first time.  How many of you athletes out there arrive at a point when after countless hours out training in all conditions, both weather and physical everything clicks and you feel brilliant and achieve all you set out to do and more. It’s happened for me now in this and my last handcycle ride because of how great I felt throughout and the time(s) I achieved. This 51km (31.6miles), ride took me 2:35:49 (including  a 2:07:00 marathon time), equating to a 3.03min/km pace throughout. It’s a magical feeling. #handcycle #handcycling #wheelchair #wheelchairlife #wheelchairathlete #wheelchairlife♿ #yoocandoanything #getoutanddosomething #getoutanddoit #armpower #ouradaptiveworld #achillesinternational #achillesinternationalnz #invacareanz #asbaucklandmarathon

Hey everybody. It’s been a while since my last handcycling video post so update I shall. I channeled my inner Bruce Banner on this 53km (33miles), ride to produce an excellent time of 2:39:42 which is my quickest pace at 3.00min/km. I also achieved a 2:03:00 time for the marathon distance during my ride. All in all a very successful day building towards the ASB Auckland Marathon at the end of October. #handcycle #handcycling #wheelchair #wheelchairlife #wheelchairathlete #wheelchairlife♿ #yoocandoanything #getoutanddosomething #getoutanddoit #armpower #ouradaptiveworld #achillesinternational #achillesinternationalnz #invacareanz #asbaucklandmarathon

“It looks like a foot”
-
“Why did you chop your fingers off?”
-
“Do you need a special keyboard? Because we have tight budget and don’t want to spend it on things like that”
-
“At least I can do this” *flips me off with both hands*
-
“But your so beautiful” *as if people with body differences can not also be beautiful* -
“It looks weird”
-
“I don’t want to hold that hand”
-
“Gross, I don’t want to touch it”
-
“Can I touch it?”
-
“Well, I guess you can play house with us, but you have to be the cat because your hand looks like a paw”
-
“We don’t want to play with you”
-
“You have a Barbie hand”
-
“It’s not like this is anything anyone wants”
-
“How did you even get this job?”
-
“Monster. Deformed. Abnormal.”
-
“You can’t” -
These are some of the words that have been said to my face throughout my life. I allowed them to be daggers tearing my self-esteem, self-confidence, and self-worth to shreds, why? Because I believed them as truth.
-
-
For the sociologists out there, Goffman’s Social Stigma Theory has a component stating that those with physical differences have all of their insecurities publicly examined and scrutinized. They are socially placed into an “out-of-group” category with a variety of made up social limitations based on the “normal’s” ideas of what people can and can not do. -
-
That is exactly what happened. It was if these statements and my hand surpassed everything else about me. I was left into a socially limited group and made a home there.
-
-
After a few years of self-awareness through millions of “why is this happening? And why do I feel this way?” type questions, all I can do now is laugh! I have transformed the once destructive daggers into nothingness. I have liberated myself from these limitations- why? Because they are made up social rules!! Which means we can re-write them! -
-
We have the power to choose the words that define us. -
-
We also have the power to choose the words that use to define others. -

Here’s to a more inclusive society! Here’s to redefining normal! Words have power, use them with mindfulness awareness and intention. #aastews #yoocandoanything #luckyfinproject #bodypositive

"My name is Moasiah (@m0e.m0). At a very young age I understood I was different than the other kids. I didn't like the attention in the way that was given. I was ashamed of my right arm. I slowly started teaching myself how to hide my arm at a young age. Tiny "me" was afraid of herself because she didn't understand why she was the way she was. I know I'm still young, which means I have plenty of time to be comfortable with who I am and understand me. Right now I'm only 16 and I'm just now realizing I'm different, and it's not bad to be born the way I was. I have a YouTube channel I made for myself to look back on in the future. There is a video I made to my future self asking myself questions on what I hope I accomplish in the future and other things. I hope in the present and future I inspire people and make them smile." #yoocandoanything #yoocan #limbdifference #bodypositive #rockwhatyougot #luckyfinproject #limbdifferenceawareness #youareenough #changingthefaceofbeauty #luckyfinsrock #celebrate #educate #uniquelyperfect #inspiration #inspirational #motivational #motivate #believe #success #picoftheday #finfam #differentlyable #grateful #nevergiveup #happy #smile #instagood #beautifullymade #blessed #inclusion

Hey everybody. Ian, a T3/4 paraplegic incomplete with a point to share. Here in New Zealand, the NZ Spinal Trust has been running a ‘Relieve the Pressure’ Appeal. This was all about the number 1 concern of those of us who live with a SCI; skin integrity - being free of pressure sores, specifically on your bottom. Of course there is either lifting yourself up from whatever you’re seated on for short periods or you can lean forward to achieve the same result. What then do you do when you’re unable to do this due to your activity? In my case when I’m either driving my Mercedes Sprinter van or out on my Invacare TopEnd Force 3 handcycle I can be doing these activities for hours at a time. To relieve the pressure I utilise 2 different types of gel cushions. The first is a Professional by Action a fully filled gel cushion that I use for my van’s driver’s seat. It is comfortable to sit on even for a a number of hours. The second cushion, featured on my handcycle is a Wondergel cushion made up from a gridwork of gel ‘squares’. These help spread the load, relieving the pressure and enabling me to handcycle for upward of 5 - 6 hours at a time.  So, if you cannot relieve your bodyweight look at the options gel cushions offer. #wheelchair #wheelchairlife #wheelchairlifestyle #wheelchairlife♿ #handcycle #handcycling #yoocandoanything #spinalpedia #riseadaptivesports #nzspinaltrust

Jedno z nielicznych zdjęć na którym udało się uwiecznić trzon Podniebna Drużyna Fundacji SMA w niezwykłym towarzystwie zespołu Oberschlesien oraz europosła Marek Plura, który również choruje na SMA, przez co nasze działania są dla niego wyjątkowo bliskie.

Jedno z nielicznych zdjęć na którym udało się uwiecznić trzon Podniebna Drużyna Fundacji SMA w niezwykłym towarzystwie zespołu Oberschlesien oraz europosła Marek Plura, który również choruje na SMA, przez co nasze działania są dla niego wyjątkowo bliskie.

So many of you know that I cannot feel hot or cold but my body reacts to it. Yup,it's wierd and dangerous. This clamp was on the bench for ten minutes and it got to 137 degrees! It's 86 in the shop with the door open. The joys of a spinal cord injury. #spinalcordinjury #walkingquad #incompletequad #nondominanthand #arttherapy #shoplocal #instagramart #staugustine #staugampmarket #yoocandoanything
I am about to do a quick talk about how can we improve accessibility and be more aware of it. So excited to be able to talk about this and who knows, change and improve something. Here we go ♿️✊🏾 “When barriers are removed, people with disabilities can and will be equal in society, with control over their own lives. Not to mention all the other groups who benefit from an #inclusive and #accessible society”

"Ella-Marie (@lifewithellacephaly) was born on February 16, 2017 with severe Microcephaly, Lissencephaly & Hypoplasia of the corpus collosum. She has an older brother who was born without a disability. Ella went through genetic testing when she was 2 months old, and when she was 5 months old we had a lead as to why she was born this way. We found out that our Ella-Marie was born with Phosphoserine Amniotransferase: a rare genetic disorder that causes no serine or glycine to her brain, as a result of that her brain never grew properly. 
_______
She’s the FIRST child to have PSAT1, get the symptoms from it and survive. She cannot eat by mouth, so she has a G-Tube. Ella is expected to be non-verbal (she’s already learning to use her voice) and we know our Ella will never be able to walk. Ella-Marie is a miracle, and I love to share her journey! For a 17 month old baby, she’s kicking butt! Keep it up Ella.

Regrann from @yoocandoanything - "When I (@katiescpjourney) saw Katie sitting alone at lunch, I invited her over to my lunch table despite the fact she was a bit different. Katie has a condition called Cerebral Palsy. Over the next year we became very close. Before I met Katie, she could take 98 independent steps. After her surgery and two changes in braces for her legs, she could only take about 3-4 good even steps independently. 
_________
We decided that this was not the life she had to stay in and we could improve on her walking. We did horseback riding, rollerskating, a 1 mike fun run, yoga, softball, baseball, swimming, biking, walking, and more. We set a goal: Katie will walk independently across the graduation stage in 2020 if I can learn to walk that same distance on my HANDS! Soon, Katie might qualify for SDR surgery, a spinal surgery that could improve her walking. Even if we hit more bumps, are denied the surgery, or can’t make our goal, I know we will maintain a strong friendship."

Живёшь в Сибири?
Продрог в ожидании отопления?
Отморозил уши, потому что не надел дома шапку??
Замёрз под четырьмя одеялами??!
У меня есть отличное решение!
Хорошая музыка, гантели и пара приседаний сделают своё дело. И не забудьте весёленькие носочки! 💪😜🧦

What are you grateful for?🙋💗🍟🍕
.
September is #sciawarenessmonth #spinalcordinjury #awareness month
.
Before my injury there are so many things I took for granted
.
Like being able to walk
.
Not needing an explanation of the entire building layout before going to a party or event "umm is it #wheelchairaccessible ?" .
Social life☠
.
Today the #friends I have don't compare to the people I used to choose to spend my time with
.
It was so nice to just get outside today and get some fresh air🌅
.
It doesn't take a major life altering injury to make a major change on your life
.
If it's what you want and you feel it in your gut, then go for it!! X💋

I remember being scared and angry, more so than I had ever been my entire life. Who wouldn't be, given that a doctor had just told you that you were paralyzed from the chest down, and will probably never walk again. It was in that moment that I decided "fuck you. No one will ever tell me what I can or can't do, especially this." My mind became a steel trap, not allowing any form of doubt, insecurity, or unwanted negative thoughts to enter this box of highly concentrated, purpose driven determination. After every task that I would accomplish I would tell myself "that ain't shit", because I knew what I had previously been capable of doing, and knew ultimately what I was going to be capable of achieving. In a situation such as this where the reset button on your life gets pressed and you're forced to relearn everything that you learned 30 years ago when you are a baby, you have two decisions to make 1. You can either rise up to the conditions of your situation and work your ass off and know that no matter what everything is going to be okay, or 2. You can sit around feeling sorry for yourself and make everyone else's life around you harder than it has to be. I never want praise for this, I just want people to understand my mindset and use it to their advantage in their lives. #sci

In the clouds and chilling like a boss on top of Monte Baldo. It's so hot on ground level, but up here, it's much cooler. Didn't have much of a view of the lake as clouds were passing by. People take the cable car up and parachute down! I need to look into this to see if it's possible to do in my wheelchair! The cable car is free for wheelchair users (or people who are 100% disabled??) plus a carer. We also didn't have to queue 👍
