Session Title: No Ordinary Journey: A Family With a Wheelchair … Exploring the World!
Laverne Bissky and her husband David have travelled to six continents with their children Devin and Kasenya. Kasenya has a severe form of Cerebral Palsy and is wheelchair user, but that hasn't held them back. This session will give insight into the challenges and joys faced by families of children with disabilities. Its a profoundly hopeful story set against a backdrop of images from around the globe!
Laverne Bissky is an inspirational speaker, writer and coach. She also volunteers her time as the Executive Director of No Ordinary Journey Foundation which she started. NOJ Foundation supports families of children with Cerebral Palsy in the developing world through education. This labour of love melds her extensive travel experience with her most rewarding role: as the mother of a child with a disability. Her book Exceptional Parent ~ Exceptional Life was released in 2013.
