A bride with a spinal cord injury fell in love with the first dress she tried on, and her wedding photos are stunning
Because of her injury, Alyssa uses a wheelchair and a ventilator.
As she shared in an Instagram post, Alyssa didn’t have mobility when she was born, but she has regained movement throughout her life.
She uses an automated wheelchair, and she’s connected to a ventilator through a trach tube. In the same post, Alyssa explained she can disconnect from her ventilator for short periods depending on how she feels, but she needs to use it the majority of the time.
Alyssa has worked to be independent despite her injury, and she can do things like cook, change her ventilator batteries, and dress herself.
