The Power Within featuring Victoria Arlen
September 21 @ 7:00 pm$26 – $156
Join the Cottage Rehabilitation Hospital Foundation for an evening with Victoria Arlen, ESPN host, Dancing with the Stars semi-finalist, Gold & Silver Medalist Swimmer and inspirational speaker.
Hear Victoria’s inspiring story of recovery and rehabilitation after being diagnosed with two rare neurological disorders, Transverse Myelitis and Acute Disseminated Encephalomyelitis, at age 11 in 2005.
In a persistent vegetative state for four years, Victoria was unable to communicate with those around her—sometimes suffering from seizures for more than 20 hours per day. After a decade-long rehabilitation, she regained the ability to walk again in 2016 after being paralyzed from the waist down.
Learn how Victoria overcame all odds to walk and dance again.
