How do you free your mind if you are trapped in a body that barely moves?
Phyllis Woolf is an inspiration. A Cerebal Palsy Quad, she has only partial use of her left hand, the rest of her body is inert. She uses an electric wheelchair to get around, and her movement is extremely restricted.
This is her journey from trying to survive to learning to thrive. Against all odds, she goes on to face her demons, get a degree, build a house, parasail, scuba dive, swim with dolphins, ride an elephant, travel the world and peel a banana.
Sassy, but warm, funny and deeply insightful, she uses her own life as an example of what we can achieve if we take responsibility for who we are. In a society obsessed by material things, she is a constant reminder that we are not defined merely by our physical appearance, but also by the capacity of our minds and spirit. Her insights offer profound inspiration and perspective for us all - disabled or not.
'We have all come to this world to work - it's just that some of us are in a wheelchair.
