Will YOU change the world even when the odds are against you?
Will you lead the fight against big insurance companies and a
powerful lobby on Capitol Hill? Welcome to the next generation of
those fighting for the underserved. Nicole Ver Kuilen, the founder
of Forrest Stump, is doing exactly that, she's changing the world.
She's fighting for the rights of individuals with disabilities to
exercise and she’s taking this fight to Capitol Hill and Nicole
want’s YOU to join the team. Nicole's position regarding the right
to mobility is enlightening, definitely the best I've encountered.
I left this interview with a renewed drive to further push for
prosthetic and orthotic care for all.
Nicole Ver Kuilen is also an athlete, specifically endurance
sports like triathlons and adventure sports. At age 10,
Nicole made the difficult decision to amputate her left leg to save
her life from cancer. She would then spend the next 16 years
fighting an outdated healthcare system to gain access to the
prosthetic technology she needed to be physically active.
Nicole Ver Kuilen founded the the nonprofit Forrest Stump and
this organization is working to remove the barriers for persons
with disabilities to participate in physical exercise and expand
access to adaptive technologies.
Watch and/or listen to Nicole Ver Kuilen explain how she’s
going to change the world.
