“Owning our story can be hard but not nearly as difficult as spending our lives running from it.” — Brené Brown
Janine was a national champion skier before an accident destroyed her athletic dreams, and nearly ended her life.
Paralyzed, Janine spent 10 days in a coma and then the following six months in the spinal ward.
She defied the odds by not only learning to walk again, but by creating an entirely new life in the most remarkable way.
