Hiya everybody! I’m Laura Beck. I was injured November 29, 2016 by one car accident. I am a C6 quadriplegic. Since my injury I have been fighting to gain independence, to still find adventure, and to still laugh at least once a day. The second year post injury, my husband and I traveled more than we have in our 29 years of living. We visited over 17 states in 2018, and 2019 will be even crazier. I’m super passionate about SCI community and making sure I’m helping others as much as possible. I am an open book, so feel free to ask me any and all questions, or just chat about life in general. I’m also on instagram ( @anhonestquad ) can’t wait to talk with all of you and make the best lemonade we can out of the lemons life has thrown at us!
