Patient Leader

Unit Support and Administrative Assistant Toronto Rehab- University Health Network Join me as I write about what it’s like to live with a disability, the impact of volunteering and the value of advocating for others. Description My name is Jessica Coriat, I am 23 years old and I was born with Cerebral Palsy. At age 18, I joined the LIFEspan program at Toronto Rehab and my quality of life vastly improved. They taught me how to eat, drink, navigate safely with a walker, and with their help I took my first steps. Thankful for their extraordinary work, I now volunteer at Toronto Rehab to give back to the organization that gave me everything. I also wish to help other people like me, living with disability, to maximize their independence. Please join me each month as I write about my experiences. My aim is to shed light on questions or concerns about rehabilitation and living with a disability, as well as discuss the importance of volunteering and advocacy. If you would like me to address a certain topic, please direct message me. You can also follow me on Twitter, @coriatjessica, and follow Toronto Rehab Foundation on Facebook or Twitter, @TorontoRehab.
