Why did you become a peer mentor?
I became a peer mentor after my grandson became paralyzed in a solo car accident in June of 2022. The support and care we received from every person who helped us in this process was the most moving and comforting experience I’ve ever had. I feel a personal responsibility to give back to the community that helped us cope with this devastating event and help us, as well as our grandson navigate this new world that we would all be a part of.
