Key Note Speakers
This year we are pleased to welcome:
Brynn McLennan and her Mom, Terry Lambert
Brynn is a 31 year old dynamic woman, who with the support of her friends, family and especially her Mom, Terry, has moved beyond the physical limitations of Muscular Dystrophy.
Brynn was diagnosed at the age of 12 years old, with FSH Muscular Dystrophy. After being an active ‘tomboy’ and playing competitive Hockey and downhill skiing, the rapid changes to her physical ability, could have been devastating for her. That said, Brynn’s Mom was adamant that she not be defined by what she couldn’t do, but rather what she COULD do. That has been a long and fascinating journey. One filled with incredible teachings. The most important of which has been acceptance of oneself… inside and out. A journey we all must take eventually.
Brynn’s dynamic personality and ability to not allow the victim mentality to rule her has allowed her to OWN her life, all of it, the awesome stuff as well as the messy stuff. She is loving, humble and vulnerable and an inspiration to many.
You can follow Brynn’s journey at: stemcellsforbynn.com, and listen to an interview with Brynn at http://www.debozarko.com/unplug-podcast-38-brynn-mclennan-power-want/
