My (now deceased) grandmother. She became a paraplegic at 23yo (in the 1930s), learned to walk with crutches and braces, remarried twice afterward, had my mother when she was 36yo, traveled the world despite the utter lack of accessibility, and learned how to fly a small airplane using hand controls in case her pilot husband ever became incapacitated mid-flight. And she grew the most beautiful purple iris.
