Coootamundra woman Tamara Taylor has cerebral palsy and has spent her life proving others wrong.

To help promote awareness of cerebral palsy Tamara is participating in Steptember – a huge achievement for someone who had surgery less than a year ago. “I decided to do Steptember because I’m one of the lucky ones that can walk,” Tamara said.

Since Tamara’s surgery nine months ago she has surprised many with her speedy recovery.

Cerebral Palsy Alliance’s physiotherapist Amy Green has been working with Tamara since her surgery has been impressed with Tamara’s determination to recover as quickly as possible.

“It took Tamara only four months to reach her pre-surgery ability; which can often take someone nearly a year to achieve, ” said Amy.

Tamara is now notching up her steps for Steptember by walking around the TAFE campus where she is currently studying business.

“She chooses to walk around TAFE instead of using her wheelchair – it’s quite amazing that she can do that, ” added Amy.
