This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.
On My Feet Again is the heartwarming and intellectually stimulating story of how a determined and resourceful young woman overcame many of the obstacles that came her way after being paralyzed in a snowboarding accident. Although told she would never get out of a wheelchair, Jennifer French refused to accept that fate and sought out experimental new technologies for people with spinal cord injuries. She became a participant in a clinical trial of an implanted neuroprosthetic system that enables her to stand up out of her wheelchair and move around on her own two feet.
A truly inspirational book, Jen's hope and optimism is addictive. Her journey from an active outdoors woman to wheelchair confinement to sailing competitively is amazing.
The facts are that she and others like her have literally put their bodies on the line to advance medical science, giving hope to those who might otherwise never dream of leaving a wheelchair.
Great job Jen!
