After I was paralyzed in a car accident in 2004, I had a very difficult time adjusting back to normal life. I was so afraid of putting myself out there and trying new things because I thought that my injury would prevent me from doing them. Using a wheelchair made me lose confidence in myself and all that I was capable of. It made me forget who the true Madeline was, a girl with endless dreams and a big need for adventure!
It is my plan to create an inspirational website that includes a series of videos and blog posts to help others find their own potential. These videos will cover my journey toward walking again; my own experience toward living a full life (including some amusing videos of me attempting extreme sports...); motivational talks about health, dreams and emotional wellbeing; information on how to adapt to life using a wheelchair; and activism in the community to aid in greater accessibility and to help others who have had similar injuries.
***All donations will go toward filming and editing equipment, expenses for video activities, and a foundation to help others with spinal cord injuries!***
