In 1998 I was an active young woman looking forward to all the possibilities life had to offer. That all changed when my car was struck by a reckless driver going more than 100km/hr (60 mph). The car crash resulted in a battle for my life that would involve two weeks in a coma, seven months in the BCPFF Burn and Plastic Surgery Unit at Vancouver General Hospital and an additional five months in rehabilitation.
What should have been the darkest chapter of my life became a bright testament to the strength of the human spirit. I am now a mother and motivational speaker. The tragedy of the accident has been turned into a life message of hope. I know the power of love and courage, and how to impart it to others. I have had the privilege to speak in front of thousand of individuals to give them fresh hope, and lead them to believe that anything is possible.
