If I could share one bit of advice with anyone who finds themselves in a similar situation – facing life in a wheelchair or with some other life-changing disability – it would be this: LIFE IS NOT OVER. Life as you knew it may be over, yes, but life can still be full. Full of passion, adventure, sports, travel, excitement, friends and family. Life is what you make it. Get involved. Brooks Adaptive Sports and Recreation Program was my personal savior, but there are adaptive sports programs all over the country. But the proof is in the pictures. Check out my slideshow, most of them were Brooks activities – certainly all of them were motivated by Brooks – opening my eyes to what’s still possible!
