Hey, welcome to my blog!
I’m Alex, well actually… my name is Alexandra Berube, but, I’m more of an Alex.
I’m 20-years-old and this is my journey through life on wheels and how I’m just like any other young adult. I am apart of Make-A-Wish Believe board of directors and many other organizations.
You’re probably wondering why I can’t walk.
Well, I have Transverse Myelitis. I became paralyzed very suddenly in 2012. Before then, I was healthy, I could run, skip, dance, and jump. Perfectly normal. Perfectly healthy.

Since I’ve become paralyzed I have been diagnosed with several other disorders (or whatever you want to call them) and I’ve endured over 30 surgeries and more time in the hospital than at home.
I have survived septic shock 3 times and sepsis 6 times!
I may have some problems but trust me, that isn’t all that I am!
So here is my blog. Sit back and enjoy the ride through my struggles, my ups and downs and everything in between! 🙂
