    ahh, I found her photography class project
    We looked at a bunch of things to help her with holding a slightly heavy camera up, and to operating it with her left hand (cameras are all right handed) .. she got it done :jump:

    FINAL PROJECT – THIS IS MY STORY…
    When people first encounter me, they just see a disabled girl in a wheelchair, and typically things go no further; however, I am so much more. I have had many ups and downs; I’ve celebrated triumphs and suffered tragedies. I have had brain surgery, woken up to a dead husband in my bed, broken many bones including my L1 vertebrae. I’ve suffered a stroke that put me in a coma and caused a severe brain injury which resulted in a year in the hospital, having to relearn how to do even the basics like walking and dressing myself. Somehow, I have been able to keep pushing forward despite the obstacles that were laid in my path. I’ve accomplished things that nobody ever dreamed would be possible – myself included. I surf, ski, returned to college where I earned my AA and transferred to CSUSM where I am working on my degree in Psychological Sciences. I’m not only surviving, I’m thriving!! This is my story…

    If You're Going Thru Hell Keep Going ...

    Thinking about you, Don, and how it is to be a memory keeper. Thanks for keeping Kimber in our thoughts, and take care of yourself, she’d want that.
