As a former firefighter, hiking was an activity that Mia participated in on a weekly basis. At the age of 20, Mia was hiking through Sequoia National Park when she fell 50 ft. off a cliff and sustained a complete T9 spinal cord injury.

Mia has worked hard to gain contraction below her level of injury and practices using a walker using AFOs in therapy. She hopes to continue down this path and walk unassisted by the therapist when assisted by the AFO.

“While some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius because the ones who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.“
