“I have always believed (and this has been strongly re-enforced by a progressive disease) that if there's something that you love to do and you can somehow do, then you should do it now. With disability, the idea of what you can do must be creatively and flexibly supplemented with different ways of doing things and with adaptive tools, such as the Freedom Chair.”
In her new series, IT'S A GRIT LIFE, Nerissa shares how the GRIT Freedom Chair helps her to continue engaging in her favorite activities and living a life of adventure. Today she discusses the versatility of the GRIT Freedom Chair, and how this one piece of equipment can serve a variety of situations.
We camped at Snaring River, where the only sites available were a couple of walk-in sites. We grabbed one and used my wheelchair to help carry the large and heavy car camping gear. After several trips down a medium-packed gravel path, we ended up enjoying what was probably our best – most private and best view, not far from a flowing river – campsite of the trip.
It's not just our Freedom Chair Riders that are a part of the GRIT Family. The Freedom Chair experience extends to our riders' loved ones as well. We wanted to highlight those Trail Buddies who accompany our riders on their adventures, and hear about how the Freedom Chair has helped their loved ones. Today's Trail Buddy Spotlight is Kelsom Owens.
