by: Sarah Todd Hammer, Jennifer Starzec
Sarah Todd Hammer and Jennifer Starzec were paralyzed by a rare condition called Transverse Myelitis when they were 8 and 13 years old. You read about what happened when they were first struck by the disease and their journeys to dance and run again in 5k, Ballet, and a Spinal Cord Injury, but that was just the beginning.
