Hayden is your typical 20-year-old student, happiest when listening to his music (loud) and playing video games.He just finished his first year of sociology at the University of Toronto. He’s loving student life, but he’s not quite sure what he wants to do after he graduates.
Right now Hayden lives with his dad, who he gets along with. But the idea of living on his own is becoming more and more appealing.But making that transition won’t be easy. Hayden has cerebral palsy and with limited mobility, gets around with a powered wheelchair.
I work hard every day.
Liam didn’t take his first steps when he was a baby. In fact, there was a point where I didn’t know if he would ever be able to walk. Liam has Arthrogryposis – a rare condition that causes stiffness in his joints and weakness in his muscles. We brought Liam to Holland Bloorview Kids Rehabilitation Hospital when he was two years old, and from that moment, everything changed.

Reading her poetry, it relaxes me to know that someone else understands the stuff that women go through.
