Wendy Crawford - Revisited

10Mar

Wendychair1.jpgThis week we revisit our conversation with Wendy Crawford. On a summer day in 1984, while driving to the airport for her first international modeling gig, 19 year old Canadian Wendy Crawford was hit by a drunk driver. Wendy never walked again. As she struggled to come to terms with life as a quadriplegic, Wendy saw the need to develop a way to raise awareness of, and become an advocate for, women facing physical challenges. So, in 2002, she founded mobileWomen.org, an online magazine that provides information and a community for women in wheelchairs. Her story is one we all need to hear.
