When Rachel, mother of three children and a successful lawyer, had a brain stem stroke four years ago, doctors feared she may not survive.
Not only did Rachel defy her doctors’ expectations, she’s now on a journey towards walking and talking again thanks to the NDIS and the support of her Plan Partners' Support Coordinator. She has even written a book on living with an acquired brain injury.
In the video above her Plan Partners' Support Coordinator Cherie and Rachel talk about her journey and how Rachel is achieving her goals in life.
After recording the video, Rachel published her book, 'Spades of Determination: A Locked-In Journey' and was asked by Plan Partners to write a blog series about her progress and her experiences with the NDIS.
