We Can Access
In 2012, our daughter was diagnosed with a malignant brain tumour at the age of 2. Surgery, chemotherapy and radiotherapy saved her life but left her with some life changing disabilities. Through our journey, we have met hundreds of families who, like us, are trying to navigate their way through a world that isn’t always designed for kids like ours. So, we created We Can Access, a website where people with disabilities, their families and carers can find support, share ideas and discover ways to access the world around them.
