Quadriplegic whose mother was told to put her in a care home after she became paralysed at 18 sets up a rehab centre to help others

***EXCLUSIVE*** ORLANDO, UK: This woman was given up on by doctors who told her mum to put her in a CARE HOME after a car crash left her QUADRIPLEGIC, but she has since proved everybody wrong and set up her OWN rehab centre for others like her. Client services worker at NextStep Orlando, Amanda Perla (29) from Orlando, Florida, USA, was involved in a car accident in 2007, just weeks before she was due to move to university. Amanda was asleep in the passenger seat of the car when her friend fell asleep at the wheel and lost control of the car. The driver was unhurt, but Amanda broke her neck and almost completely severed her spinal cord. The crash left Amanda a C6 incomplete quadriplegic, meaning she is paralysed from the chest down. All hopes of moving to university were lost as Amanda spent the next six months in a rehabilitation hospital, learning to live in a wheelchair. Doctors told her that she would never be able to walk or live an independent life again, which was difficult for Amanda, who was always very sporty and active, to comprehend. After six months, the facility insisted there was no more they could do for her and they warned her mother that if she couldn’t take care of her, she should put Amanda in a nursing home at the age of 18. Amanda’s mum refused and quit her job to take care of her daughter herself. The pair researched rehab facilities to see what help there was for people with paralysis, when they came across NextStep, an intense exercise-based recovery centre, located in California. Amanda saw first-hand how little help there is for people living with lifelong injuries, leading her to take the plunge and create her own rehab centre, NextStep Orlando. Without sufficient funds, Amanda and her mum set up the non-profit organisation through fundraising, in the hopes that people who were once given up on could be given the chance to recover.
