Erin was injured in a diving accident at a friend’s pool just over six years ago. After diving through an inner tube, her head hit the bottom of the pool, paralyzing her from the shoulders down, instantly.  She remembers everything, trying to swim but unable to do anything but move her head back and forth- She eventually drowned, but was luckily saved and revived by her boyfriend (at the time) and was taken to hospital by ambulance.

 

“Permanence, perseverance and persistence in spite of all obstacles, discouragements and impossibilities: It is this, that in all things distinguishes the strong soul from the weak“
