From Wheelchair to Walker!

Chrissy's Success Story

Hi, my name is Chrissy and I am writing this to thank NMBAFC and especially Liz, my personal trainer, for helping me improve my quality of life.

I was in a serious car accident 15 years ago and have been in a wheel chair since then. Even ordinary tasks like getting in and out of bed, bathing, dressing, and getting my two year old son his meals were major tasks for me.

Now with Liz's instruction and dedication, I can now do the following:
walk with a walker,
get in and out of bed,
feed my son,
get in and out of the shower and so much more.
I can even walk on a treadmill.

It is amazing how much we have accomplished together. As I continue to work with Liz, I know I will become stronger not only physically, but mentally as well. I now know there is a light at the end of the tunnel and I am very thankful for Liz and all of you who have encouraged me along the way. Who knows maybe some day I won't even need my walker. Wouldn't that be amazing?
