    Report: Paralyzed cyclist walks again

    I don't normally post, more of a lurker here but this caught my eye. Not sure if this is the right place but...

    Report: Paralyzed cyclist walks again


    I know there's no description what exactly her injury was, but the first thing that popped into my mind is, is anyone trying to figure out how and why she got her legs back? I wish they'd gone into more detail with it.

    Here is her web site:

    http://www.moniquevandervorst.com/Mo...t/Welcome.html

    Reading her story carefully you can figure out something is wrong in that picture.

    Also soon a book should come out...

    Thanks for the site! Did a quick read through of her bio (I'm supposed to be doing homework so I'll do a more thorough read later), but something does seem way off. Maybe I'm skeptical because of all the fake recoveries I've heard about, but to my mind if she was truly injured, even incompletely, how could she make a full recovery and if it's true why aren't scientist pushing to find out how or why?

    this issue was discussed on another forum: a girl ( a para) made a comment that she had roomed with her an a paraolympic event..and she said she suspected she was not for real then? and that their was some other "issues" there..anyway..if that is the case I HATE to see so many people get so much ill found hope from this story..could be a hoax...another one!

    I doubt that.
