Tai Chi Instructor
I am a childhood cancer survivor who also has narcolepsy. Over the years I have had 16 cancer related surgeries, including two allographs, which is a transplant of the shaft of the femur bone. I have had one and a half of my quadriceps removed (the largest muscle group in the body) as well. This has led to many other complications. Throughout high school I continued to walk with a heavy limp, and the off and on use of a cane. In my late teens and early 20's I really began to look for answers that would help me feel empowered, and get my body capable of backpacking into nature again.
Enter Tai Chi. Now I backpack every year, and nobody ever notices my limp without me pointing it out! For me the practice of Tai Chi has been miraculous, and I recommend it to everyone who will listen. It aligns the bones of my knee and thus reduces my pain levels, it aligns my back when I get sore (my weak leg is almost 2 inches shorter than the other), and it helps me settle down my mind and nervous system so that I can feel peaceful at the end of stressful days.
