“I have two kids, 15 and 11. I’m a single mom. A vehicle came behind me and rear ended me. I’ve always been an active person and now I struggle to walk up a flight of stairs. The most difficult part for me has been taking care of my kids. And my doctor tells me I will probably be living with this for the rest of my life.”
“I’ve been off work for two and a half years. Financially, we went through a period where we thought we were going to lose our home. There were days where I could not lift my daughter, she was only two at the time.
I’m the one feeling the pain. Just because you can’t see it, doesn’t mean it’s not there.”
“Getting ready to pull into my driveway, slowing down. A gentleman behind me decides to hit his gas and go in on top of the sidewalk and take me out of my driveway. Financial, physical, mental, the stiffness in the neck, the muscle spasms.
I went from climbing mountains to sitting at a desk.”
