The day before Meredith’s 25th birthday she was helping friends move an upright piano out of the back of a pick-up truck. As it was coming out of the truck, it tipped over and landed on her back. The impact fractured Meredith’s sternum and shattered her L1 vertebrae. After an 8-hour surgery to put Meredith’s spine back together again, she woke up in the Surgical ICU paralyzed from the waist down.

“Sometimes we choose our challenges and dreams, and if we’re really lucky, we can reach them. But there are other times in life when the challenges simply choose us, and it’s what we do in the face of the challenges that defines who we are.”
