"At the end of August I was enjoying a long weekend in Nantucket when my friends and I decided it would be fun to rent motor scooters to explore the island. It was fun until the very end of the day when my scooter skidded and I landed on my right foot (as well as my knee, hip, elbow and head). I knew immediately that I had done a lot of damage to my foot. After being rushed to the local hospital and a full workup I was told that I would need surgery to repair the broken bones in my foot."

"28th July, 1968 was a day that changed my life. From being a fit, attractive and energetic 20 year old mum with an 8 month old baby I became an unattractive, disabled female with little hope of continuing to live a normal life. On this day, I was involved in a serious road accident that left me with a badly disfigured face, brain damage with memory loss, multiple vision, a hand that had been sewn back after being almost severed."
