MyNDTALK - Defiant - Janine Shepherd

Listen to "the remarkable life of Janine Shepherd, an elite ski racer whose bid to represent Australia in the Olympics was cut short by a tragic accident. She recalls the ten days she hovered between life and death, faced with the difficult choice to let go or return to a body that would never be whole again. After six months in hospital battling to rehabilitate her permanent disabilities, she not only
taught herself to walk again--she earned her wings as both a pilot and an aerobatics instructor.

Janine Shepherd shares with candor and compassion the practical lessons she has learned throughout her continuing journey. Janine offers hope and encouragement for anyone facing a life challenge, sharing her hard-won wisdom and priceless advice for navigating one's way from loss to healing.
