If you are a fan of the HDS MEDALLION® Facebook page then you know every Wednesday we do a feature called “Women we Admire”. This is a chance for us to recognize strong and determined women who have fought long odds to make it to where they are now.
We pay close attention to women and girls with disabilities who refuse to let their struggles deter them from living life to the fullest. From paralympic athletes and surfers to business CEO’s and fashion designers, we put the spotlight on courageous women who refuse to give in or give up.
We welcome all our blog readers to visit our page and check out this inspiring series. We also welcome feedback and suggestions on who think should be featured. Any woman who has had to overcome incredible odds from a disability, be it mental or physical, is a candidate for this series.
Some of the women we have featured include amputee athlete Sarah Reinersten, Dancing with the Stars contestant Amy Purdy, nursing home activist Fern Horton and motivational speaker Rosemarie Rossetti, Ph.D.
Visit our Facebook page every Wednesday to see who we feature next and again, feel free to send us your suggestions for inspirational women who overcome disabilities and continue to thrive in life.
