Life in a Wheelchair – Wheelchair Challenge for Mia Schaikewitz

Published on Nov 5, 2013

Life in a wheelchair. Wheelchair challenge for Mia Schaikewitz, one of the stars of the hit reality TV show, Push Girls. As a vibrant young girl she was a competitive swimmer, when at just 15 years old, her life was changed forever. A ruptured blood vessel in her spinal cord (AVM) left her paralyzed from the waist down, but has not stopped her.

If you want to do healing work like Mia, join this life-changing, 6-week online course for $49. Starts July 16, 2015 and will be the most fun and transformational soul work you’ve ever done. Release shame, stigma, secrets and live your authentic, fullest life! Sign up here:

Mia takes us through the day when the blood vessel ruptured. At that time, there was a 2 year window where doctors hoped she could regain some feeling in her lower body.

“So, there was hope at the time, but it was also about facing reality.”

Fortunately, she lived in Atlanta, Georgia where they have the Shepherd Center–one of the best rehab facilities for spinal cord injuries in the country. From the moment she walked into the hospital, they told her that she could have the life she wanted and remain independent.

Initially, Mia was very depressed and angry. For the first two weeks at the rehab hospital, she couldn’t even sleep and was dealing with anxiety. Slowly but surely, she began to accept her new life. The doctors told her that she would be able to have children, play sports and be independent. That’s all she needed to change her attitude about it and prepare to work on the skills that would get her there.

Accepting her new situation didn’t mean that she was giving up on walking again. It was a stepping stone into become who she really was. Mia talks more about how she is really happy.

“A lot of people want to cure everyone, thinking, ‘Oh, I see a defect in them, let me fix it.'”

People that don’t know how she’s dealt with paralysis may see it as the most difficult thing in her life, but she doesn’t see it that way.

“Being different on the outside allows me to tell my story more often and connect with people.”

Mia talks about the rehab experience and how difficult it was at times. She encourages people to find just one thing that they can focus on. She talks about building the strength to lift her body in order to be independent. It took her 3 months to be able to regain her strength.

Her biggest fear after leaving the rehab facility was not fitting in anymore in her high school. Much to her surprise, her peers didn’t even care about the chair. They were just happy to see her. One person said, “It’s still Mia, she’s just sitting down.” And it was those moments that made her realize that we all are more than our circumstances.

“I don’t see the wheelchair as an obstacle, I see it as a challenge. Challenge is something that fuels me. I think all of us have this need to accomplish something. Challenges give us those opportunities to accomplish something.”

If Mia could talk to her teen self who was lost of hope and anxious about her future, she would say, “Don’t give up hope. Don’t give up hope.”

Barriers to Equality Rights in Canada for the Disabled

 Transcript of Barriers to Equality Rights in Canada for the Disabled

by kiana lavictoire on 15 October 2012

Current Barriers An example of this barrier is the case of Miele v. Famous Players Inc.
Another Common
Barrier is Mobility Our third and final solution is in regards to mobility barriers.
We decided that every building should be required to provide ramps
at entrances and exits for those who use wheelchairs, as well as brail
on every sign that directs someone or tells them what is going on
so that blind people can be more independent when doing activities.
We have come up with a few solutions that will help people with disabilities to feel as if they are sharing equal human rights Solutions to the Barriers In conclusion we think that the barriers that are there are ones our society has created through ignorance.
We believe everyone whether they are disabled or not should have all the same opportunities and access to the same facilities.
We think individuals should be treated equally .
We tend not to think about issues like this if we or our families are not directly affected by them, we all need to open our eyes and our minds to differences between us. That being said we are more alike then different.
We should not prejudge or underestimate each other. Think about this , the following people were considered disabled due to either physical disabilities or learning disabilities: Albert Einstein, Alexander Graham Bell, Thomas Edison, Franklin D. Roosevelt and look what they achieved.
Conclusion Barriers to Equality Rights in Canada for the Disabled By: Kiana , Catherine
Cassidy and Roxanne
What Makes a Disability in Ontario Disability is the term used to define a restriction in the ability to perform a normal activity of daily living which someone of the same age is able to perform Current barriers exist in both legal and social situations:


unequal access to schools, services, unemployment
barriers to mobility An example of unequal access to facilities
is the case with nine year old Zachary and his father This shows that schools are not equipped to meet the needs of disabled children.

Zachary is a good example of a child being mistreated for his disabilities. Furthermore, children with disabilities that develop in the womb tend to be abandoned or aborted for several reasons Parents do not feel that they will be able to provide a good home for their disabled children

Parents do not have the proper funding for their children Parents feel that children with disabilities is a burden they require a large amount of attention

Parents do not have time to focus so much on their children. The first solution to this problem that we came up with pertains to unequal access of facilities.

We think that the government should put a portion of our taxes towards the school’s special education, as well as towards work areas that are suitable for people with certain disabilities.

The money given to these facilities would make it easier for them to give disabled people opportunities to learn and work in places that would not normally allow them

Another solution that we came up with was in regards to the abandonment of children due to their disabilities.

Parents who abandon or abort these children often feel incapable of raising them due to lack of resources or money.

We think that if they could be compensated in some way, whether it be through the providing of extra equipment or an allowance to those with disabled children, then people would not feel that the only option is to get rid of their disabled child.
