At the age of eighteen, following a tragic car accident that left me with an irreparable lesion to my spinal cord, I found myself paralyzed from my shoulders down to my toes. My life had just been flipped upside down for ever. I was, however, able to regain my autonomy thanks to my strong determination, my family, my friends, numerous rehabilitation professionals, as well as the financial support that I was privileged enough to receive. I took back control of my life, and gave it a new purpose and direction. I allowed myself once more to find pleasure in living happily and accomplished!
Through the Adapte-Toit Foundation, my aim is to give to those with a spinal cord injury not receiving adequate funding the opportunity to rebuild their lives in an adapted living environment with all of the necessary assistance.
Together lets make autonomy accessible and inclusive!
