Life changing

I’m not handicapped. I’m handicapable.

“Hi my name is Grace!

I am 13 years old and I’m from Fernie, BC. I have a rare condition called arthrogryposis. It’s a muscle disorder that limits motion in the joints, so I am in an electric wheelchair most of the day. My best friend Katie told me I had to go to Easter Seals Camp, and when I got there I was amazed.

It was so great to be included, no one was left out of anything – it brought tears to my eyes. I see having a disability in a whole different way.

When I’m at Easter Seals I’m not handicapped, I’m handicapable. I get to experience so many different things and meet people who look past my disability and see the person inside. Easter Seals changed my life.” – Grace, an Easter Seals Camper
