A Fire on the Ice: Fighting Epilepsy, Transverse Myelitis & More

Spinal Cord Injury (SCI)

My Health Journey Bio

Hi, my name is Jazz. I am 23 years old from Pennsylvania, now living in sunny Florida. I have used a wheelchair for 5 years due to a rare disease known as Transverse Myelitis. This has left me an incomplete paraplegic, but not with an incomplete life! In 2014, I began playing sled hockey and was totally in love. I have been working my wheels off for the last two years to tryout for the women's national team. In August, I tried out and was able to make the developmental team! Despite struggling with epilepsy and a number of other conditions at the moment, I'm working towards building a better body to build a brighter athletic future.
