Codi Darnell, Blogger and VMTop30 2018 Winner

Codi Darnell is a mother of three and the voice behind the blog Help Codi Heal. After a fall left her paralyzed at 28 years old, Codi was inspired to share her story in order to bring understanding to her life as a wife and mother with paralysis.

Codi will share her story from her accident through recovery and beyond including the effect it had on her marriage and motherhood.

Taking Control of the Unexpected

About Her Talk

Nobody is immune to change. Codi learned how severe that change can be when she suffered a spinal cord injury at 28 years’ old. Hear her story and discover her outlook on surviving and moving on from the unexpected.

When her youngest child was just 18 months old, Codi suffered a fall that left her a paraplegic and changed the path of her life.

Her blog takes a real and honest—albeit sometimes sarcastic—look at what living life with paralysis is all about. She is passionate about removing stigmas and mystery from wheelchair life while sharing the ups and downs of marriage, motherhood and moving on.

Codi was named Vancouver Mom’s Top Blogger of 2018 and you can often find her in front of her computer deleting most of what she writes.

Who is the woman this little girl will become? I know I have a few years to help shape her, but she will ultimately make choices that create her future self. But what do I hope for her? That list is too long, but here are the highlights:⭐️ ⭐️ I hope she is determined in her goals and intentional in her actions. I hope her ambition is never underestimated and she is content and confident in whatever path she takes. I hope she sees failure and success because there is so much to be taken from both. I hope she always has someone in her life to take her hand and share her burdens, and that she is never too proud to admit when she needs help. I hope she is kind but not naive. And above all, I hope she always knows that she is worth it—that who she is will always be good enough.. ⭐️ Happy International Women’s Day to all the women and women-in-training.
