My name is Jessika Kattah and I am 31 years young. At the age of 26, I was paralyzed during a 2nd surgery to try and remove a lipoma tumor compressed against my spine. I went into the surgery able-bodied and woke up 9 hours later paralyzed with 45% of the tumor removed but with damage to my spinal cord. However, my disability does not define me & I continue to lead an active ADAPTIVE life that includes traveling, SCUBA diving, hand cycling, indoor skydiving, wheelchair racing and so much more!
