In 2014 during her senior year of High School, Grace Fisher’s spine was ravaged by a virus leaving her paralyzed from the neck down. In the days following, she was diagnosed with Acute Flaccid Myelitis and sent to Craig Rehabilitation Hospital in Denver, CO. There she was introduced to music therapy and adaptive art. This not only helped strengthen her neck, but also helped heal her mind and soul. Nearly 8 months after her arrival home she was approached by Make A Wish foundation in Santa Barbara, CA. Grace’s wish before she turned 18 was to help other children with disabilities through art and music. This is her way to pay it forward and she is eternally grateful to the people of the Make a Wish Foundation and the teamwork at Santa Barbara Foundation to make her dream a reality.
