Anatomy of Movement Inc.

I've joined this discussion because I have Post Traumatic Syringomyelia and my cord is split from T1-T9.  I have been confined to a wheelchair, but no more.  I am now walking, with good days, bad days, and sometimes a bad fall.

I started Anatomy of Movement Inc in 2017 in Santa Rosa, CA to begin a daily disability access gym.  Then on October 8, 2017, the Tubbs fire took my home and my new business.  

My dream is still going, we've moved 4 times, had more fire here, but I feel committed to doing this.  When I am in a wheelchair I get 6 weeks of PT and they didn't know what to do with me.  I rehabilitated myself by a mix of methods, respecting my limitations.  I feel that EVERY disabled person is entitled to a safe place to exercise with equipment and trainers that know what to do.  You feel so much better, the difference is amazing, but so many people have no mobility and nowhere to go.

I guess right now I am feeling a bit defeated.  We are subject to rolling blackouts, my studio space is cheap but in disrepair.  There is equipment I desperately need.  I want to build my facility in a day, as quickly as possible, but its taking too long.

I just need some reminders of who is out there, how many need this and any ideas or thoughts you want to share.  I know that I don't have much longer, my spinal cord is dying as life marches across it.  Reading everyones stories is such a great inspiration for me to continue when I need strength!  Thank you♥️

    The documentary wants to highlight how some courageous entrepreneurs face challenges besides their personal physical ones, in spite of the difficulty of running a business in a volatile economy, regardless of the ups and downs.
