Tip for pain warriors: "Movement is key- know your limits and move within them! Movement has been my best medicine once I was healed enough to start walking again. Although any impact causes discomfort, I recognize when I move, the blood flow allows my pain to subside. Prior to COVID-19, water aerobics was my exercise of choice for two hours of pure physical, mental, and spiritual rejuvenation!"
Fun fact: "I am a poet/voiceover talent and I love to sing!"
