Video: Sara's Journey of Recovery

Published 03/24/2017

"I make a point of saying to everyone I meet,'Treat me the same as everyone else.' I don't want to be treated differently, I want to be respected for who I am." - Sara
 
Sara's childhood was full of challenges, starting with a brain injury around birth, which resulted in cerebral palsy. She also had physical complications with her feet, leading to multiple surgeries and long recovery periods. At 18, she was diagnosed as having been in a psychotic state and saw and heard things others did not. 
 
In spite of her struggles, Sara has a 'no excuses' attitude and doesn't want to be seen as someone with a disability. Click on the video button above to learn more about Sara and her story.
