An Interabled Family
Meet the Cross Family (@cross_family_adventures). We're an "inter-abled family" - Dad with a Spinal Cord Injury, two kids with lots of energy and Mum who keeps it all together. We're a regular, everyday family, going about our everyday lives... with one little difference - the wheelchair. We've recently begun sharing our life and adventures in the hope that, in doing so, we can break down the barriers and remove the stigma regarding what it means to be a family living with a disability.
Dane had a sporting accident in 2001, sustaining a Spinal Cord Injury which resulted in him becoming a C5 Quadriplegic (complete). Since then, Dane has met and married Stacey and have had two amazing sons (Ashton and Dawson). As an "inter-abled family", our adventures often present challenges but that doesn't stop us from living our best life and chasing our dreams. We have hundreds of stories from past and present adventures and we look forward to sharing them with the Yoocan community!
