    My Wheelchair Is My Freedom!

    My wheelchair is my freedom! I didn't want one at first, for years I wouldn't accept it as an option. I thought it would somehow make me more disabled. (I can walk short distances, but can't stay upright very long without loosing consciousness.) That's not the case though. I was...

    Manual Wheelchair

    Use it for far distances or if I'd be required to stand for a very long period of time. I was born with moderate Cerebral Palsy. I'd give more info about that, but I may save it for my first blog on here ;)

    I Use A Wheelchair

    I use a wheelchair.  Only sometimes because I know how to walk on my hands pretty fast!  I was born without legs.  When I use my wheelchair I go pretty fast too.  Just as fast as some people running.  Faster down a hill!  I love it!
