In 2014, Marie-Eve was diagnosed with a devastating brain infection and had six brain surgeries. After her first surgery she became paralyzed and had to learn to walk again. She worked hard on her rehabilitation, after which she was left on her own to figure out what to do next. Two years later, she started the WCSBH program and worked hard on her cognitive abilities full time, for over a year. After having been through both the crushing challenge of having and living with a brain injury and going through the program herself, Marie-Eve’s hard work paid off and she was asked to be part of the WCSBH as a volunteer. Knowing very well the ins and outs of the program for having been through it, Marie-Eve accepted the challenge instantly. She is now volunteering as a Community Relations Volunteer, working in Marketing, Community Outreach and as a “coach” for incoming clients. Marie-Eve’s main objective is to make sure people suffering from a brain injury get the help they deserve, get out of their isolation, and reclaim the life they once had by re-engaging and being an active part of their community.
