But she looks so normal…!

She calls herself, Healing Pilgrim. Amit’s story is not your typical biking accident. My friend was cycling in Cambodia, alone, when she found herself on a bridge that seemed fine at the start. She realized too late that it was rotten and she, and the bike, plunged through. A Cambodian farmer and his wife found her and saved her life.

The doctors didn’t give her much hope of walking again. Today, after countless surgeries, Amit walks. Sometimes she crouches or reclines. But she never sits, and she can only stand in one place for mere moments. Pain is a constant in her life, but to look at her, none of that is readily apparent. She is one of those people who suffers invisible injuries, and she has decided to do the thing she CAN do to spread the word about others like herself. She’s going to WALK.

Amit will be walking the Camino de Santiago in Spain to raise awareness about invisible injuries. Please click here to learn more about her story and The Camino Project. Then support her in whatever way you can.

    As if she doesn’t have enough on her plate, my friend Sherry has a big heart and has been an amazing support, here in Bali, on my healing journey – and, now in shining a light on my upcoming Camino walk. Thank you Sherry!

    Awesome journey, Amit. I support you both emotionally and financially and have sent your journey’s site along to about 40 people in my contact list. I hope some respond. I don’t have your email so will write you via Sherry’s blog. You were an amazing addition as our yoga leader during our writing workshop. Best of luck on your journey!! It’s an inspiration to all (of us) who have invisible injuries.
