Episode 5: Spinal Injuries

In December 2009, mother & daughter, Heidi and Jenni Haydon, had been out riding for the day on their beloved motorcycles. Sadly, Heidi never made it home that day as she was t-boned by a ute going through a roundabout. The ute bulldozed her into the guardrail after the driver failed to give way. Heidi was just 22 years old at the time. Although Heidi never shed a drop of blood in the crash, she was left a T4 complete paraplegic and is now paralysed from the chest down and will never walk again. Heidi tells her heart-breaking story and the battles she has faced to overcome adversity. “Being in a crash has changed by life completely… my life ended as I knew it”.
