My Y Story...

Jennifer

Jennifer’s story at the Y began like many others who start the New Year off with a healthy resolution, except Jennifer has Spina Bifida and Cerebral Palsy. As a child, she was told she would never walk. Known for so long as “the girl in the wheelchair”, Jennifer had two goals for herself as an adult, to earn her degree in Psychology from UWGB and to walk across the stage to accept her diploma. However, three days after reaching her goals, she had surgery and had to start all over learning how to use her muscles. At the Y, Jennifer is overcoming her challenges and working to walk again. She is gaining strength and mobility along with nerve sensation in her ligaments. Jennifer exclaims, “It’s an amazing feeling to be able to look at someone eye to eye! Go for your goals — no matter how small or big, just go for them. You can achieve so much if you believe in yourself.” Jennifer’s next goal is to walk the Triumph Mile in summer 2015 at the Bellin Run.
