Watch: Rachelle Friedman 'Quadriplegic Bride' Receives Generous Gift From CrossFit Owner - The Mobility Resource

There is nothing more annoying than when I hear able-bodied individuals say people with disabilities abuse the system. I’ve heard them say things like “They get everything taken care of; healthcare, housing, money, food and so forth.” But little do people know this is a huge misconception.

Take Rachelle Friedman’s story for example. After a freak accident that paralyzed her from the chest down, Friedman’s insurance company covered her physical therapy for only 20 days. Thats less than one month. And probably the same amount of time required for a dislocated shoulder.

What’s more, she was denied social security disability because she had not worked long enough. (She graduated college just months before the accident and had yet to find full-time employment).

That’s when CrossFit APX owner Andrea Logan stepped in and offered to train Friedman for free to help build her upper body strength.
