Caregiving with Grace with Debbie Fisher

No Barriers

Debbie Fisher was a physical therapist for over 20 years and is now a full-time caretaker for her daughter, Grace. In 2014 during her senior year of High School, Grace Fisher’s spine was ravaged by a virus leaving her paralyzed from the neck down. She was diagnosed with Acute Flaccid Myelitis and sent to Craig Rehabilitation Hospital in Denver, CO. At Craig Hospital, she was introduced to music therapy and adaptive art. This not only helped strengthen her neck but also helped heal her mind and soul. She worked with Make-A-Wish Foundation to fulfill her desire to help other children with disabilities through art and music, by starting The Grace Foundation, which brings the healing touch of art therapy to other children living with a disability. Debbie resides in Santa Barbara alongside her husband, Bill, and their daughters, Grace, and Emily.Resources:Visit the Grace FoundationWatch the Trailer for Amazing GraceCheck out Grace’s Blog“Embracing New Possibilities”

031 - Grace & Debbie Fisher

TOCA Backstage

With all the craziness going on in the world today, I have to confess that at times, it seems like we are riding an emotional rollercoaster. Some days we are truly optimistic and some days are filled with despair. Then you meet someone like Grace Fisher. I learned about Grace through an old friend of mine who shared some of her videos on her social media page. The video posts were mostly of a young girl in her mid-late teens playing music. She was full of life and you could tell that the music was inside her just waiting to come out. 5 years ago, Grace lost all ability to move. She can no longer strum her guitar, dance on the stage or do just about anything else that a young girl in her early 20s can do. Still, she has found a way to create music, stay optimistic and enjoy the beauty in life. This year marks that 30 year anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act. In light of this special day, Easterseals has put together a film challenge honoring people with disabilities. This year, Lynn Montgomery (the director of the feature length documentary ‘Amazing Grace’) entered a 5 minute documentary about Grace’s story. You can watch it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=goLiaNItVrw&t=231s Easterseals’ social media contest for these short videos is an attempt to bring awareness not only to the organization but the ADA as well. The video that gets the most views and shares wins! You have until August 2nd to help Grace’s video win. Please watch, like, and forward this message to help us promote our short.  Grace also has a non-profit organization to help young people with disabilities experience the arts.
