At the young age of 14, Taylor Lindsay-Noel was a Canadian National Gymnastic Champion. She was an energetic superstar on her way to success and fulfilling her dream of being an Olympic medalist.
On July 15, 2008, Taylor had an unexpected fall from the high bar which left her instantly paralyzed from the neck down.
It’s been six years since Tayler’s fall which resulted in her becoming a quadriplegic, and Taylor has continued to make new dreams come true. She was her high school president, graduated as an Ontario Scholar and has won various academic awards. Next year Taylor will be starting her third year in Radio and Television at Ryerson University where she currently holds an A average. She has had the opportunity to intern with Global News and Entertainment Tonight Canada. Taylors new goals are to become an entertainment reporter and to meet Ellen Degeneres. She has tried in the past, however she was denied, as Ellen is a very busy lady! Last year Taylor was featured on the Oprah Winfrey Network which shows you that Taylor is far from ordinary. She is an inspiration to many people and she deserves to share her inspiration with the world through meeting the one and only Ellen.
I am one of Taylor’s therapists at Aim2Walk, Neurological Rehabilitation Facility, and I want to help make her dreams come true. Taylor and I will be traveling to Los Angeles in July, 2014 and we hope to get onto an Ellen show. Please help us get this message to Ellen and her team so that Taylor can meet her while we are there. Please, like, share, tweet and pass along this message to help Taylor make another dream come true!
