The Comeback – Rashida’s Story

Andrew Skinner March 3, 2021 News, Noteworthy, SCI, Videos

2021 is a year of comebacks here at Triumph. And we’re thrilled to share the comeback stories of the amazing people we have the privilege to serve.

Rashida Brown was injured in a gun accident when she was 13-years-old. When she first heard her doctor say the words “complete paralysis” she simply couldn’t comprehend what such a diagnosis could mean for a young and active girl. But she wouldn’t be held down.

"A van would be such a blessing to me and my family."

As the years passed, Rashida learned to cope with her limitations and triumph over the challenges she faced. When she became a mother, she finally understood what it meant to have a purpose and to be needed for her strength.

Now with 4 kids and 1 grandchild depending on her, transportation problems have been a constant struggle. Rashida submitted her story to Triumph as an entry in our Adapted Van Giveaway.

As you know, we love a good comeback story, so we surprised Rashida this Winter with her very own adapted van.

Watch the moment we surprised Rashida:

"As the world attempts a comeback from the chaos of 2020, let each one of us pursue our own personal comebacks."

Will you help someone like Rashida make their comeback?

    This is why I have been supporting this organization for all these years.
    I am blessed to be partial rather than complete and other than a few years, have kept a steady job post-injury.
    I make sure to contribute whenever I can.
