Walking miracle. Had a tumour in my spinal cord, emergency surgery, 7 masses in my breast, removed and reconstruction. Learned how to walk

Everyone has a secret talent, what is yours?

My strength and determination. At such a young age to have a rare tumour in my spinal cord and to be told you are a L2 and l4 incomplete paraplegic but to walk the first day in rehab and be out in 7 days is a miracle. Then to have my breast removed and reconstruction surgery 3 months later. To have the strength and determination to not let that define me and my goals to live a normal life.

If you were voted our cover girl, what would you do with $10,000?

If I would be voted I would help my family and give back to the rehab centre that helped me through the hardest time in my life.
