Meet Alessia
Fifteen-year-old Alessia feels like she’s living in a bubble  
a bubble she can’t wait to burst.



Meet Liam
There was a point where I didn’t know if Liam would 
ever be able to walk.


Meet Cristina
Whether it’s attending university or starting a career, you can be sure Cristina will make the necessary adjustments to succeed. 

Meet Gabbie 
It takes her longer to learn and do things like pick up a paint brush or kick a ball. These simple activities that most kids take for granted are harder for Gabbie – but not impossible.

 Meet Fei
Music has turned Fei from a little shy boy into
a confident young man.

Meet Selina
Selina's parents travelled from Trinidad to Toronto so
that Selina could receive care at Holland Bloorview.


Meet Jadine
Sometimes people look at me and
they only see the wheelchair. They don’t see the real person.


Meet Wesley
I remember when Wesley couldn’t roll over, couldn’t
walk, couldn’t move.


Meet Hayden 
“When you navigate around the city as a disabled
person you have to think about things other people
don't think about”


Meet Zach
Zach's always looking for the positive. He has his
down days like any kid with a disability, but 99 per cent
of the time, he’s up for some fun.


Meet Remy
When you have a concussion, you look like you're
fine. But you're not.


Meet Susan
My wish is to live in a society where people with
autism can be understood and accepted.


Meet Payton
At 21 months, I didn't even know if Payton could
say one word.


Meet Amy
Last September was the first time I had spent the
entire day at school in more than two years.


Meet Claire
Claire was born with a small left arm, but that hasn't
stopped her.


Meet Imaani
Imaani might be the only four-year-old with his own
army.


Meet Jason
Last year, I did something that I hadn’t been able
to do for months – I walked by myself.


Meet Joseph
When Joseph said Dad for the first time, it’s a
moment I will never forget.


Meet Warren
Every time I tried to stand, the dizziness returned.
