After Losing Her Ability To Walk At 12 Years Old, Erica Wilson Has Become An Inspiration For All To Follow Their Passions!
After dancing for years, Erica Wilson lost her ability to walk because of transverse myelitis. The cause was unknown, and it brought down Erica’s spirit. She’d been active and healthy her entire life and suddenly she was told she would never walk again.
For a while she was very depressed and didn’t want to do anything. To change her pessimistic attitude, her mother took her to Lakeshore Foundation, a nonprofit that’s dedicated to physical fitness and activities for people with physical disabilities and chronic health problems. Erica was introduced to the world of wheelchair basketball and found something that made her feel alive again. This girl is amazing.
