Here I talk to a young lady who lost her ability to walk as a result of being abused by her father, but yet is empowered to spread positivity.

In this episode you'll hear my chat with Courtney Cirabisi, a 30 year old who lives in Bakersfield, California. She became reliant on a wheelchair for everyday mobility after she was child abused by her dad when she was 9 months old, resulting with a spinal cord injury. I've been following her journey as she shows us that life doesn’t stop after you have been abused and lost the ability to walk. Courtney shares how she believes the mind is the most important thing a person can have. With that knowledge she is able to live a positive life after all she's been through. She explains how she feels that she is meant to be where she is today. I love her outlook and her strength and how she lives a full, rich life. She has such a beautiful awareness and is using it to inspire others. Courtney is on a mission to show others how strong your mind is when facing adversity. She is an author at Push Living, ( a organization highlighting wheelchair lifestyle. Thanks for listening in to our chat.

Hugs, Lorri
