My Story

I'm a survivor...

Imagine waking up at 4:20 in the morning looking up at the ceiling,I tried to make a sound only garbled noises coming from my mouth I tried to move my body and my body doesn’t respond I was totally helpless. My Husband realized I was having a stroke and took me to the hospital I was there for a week receiving IV fluids and physical therapy upon arriving home after that week I decide to go for 30 mile bike ride I wasn’t going to let my disability prevent me from getting on a bike ride. I decided to start Heels On Wheelz to show people with disabilities that just because you have a disability doesn’t mean you have to give up. So to raise stroke awareness I decided to ride my bicycle my first tour across country from Panama City Florida to Los Angeles.
