Before a tragic accident shattered her world, Sam Bloom had it all. She was a happily married mother of three, was practicing as a nurse and led an active lifestyle on Sydney’s Northern Beaches. But when she leant on a rotten balcony railing during a family holiday in Thailand, and crashed six metres onto the concrete below, her life changed forever. She was told that she would never walk again. Months of intense rehabilitation were just the beginning of her long journey to recovery. After returning to Australia, she slipped into a deep depression. Then, one day, an unusual companion turned out to be Sam’s saving grace. From the depths of despair, she’s gone on to rebuild her life, and re-discover her love of sport, winning gold for Australia at the World Adaptive Surfing Championships. She now travels the country sharing her powerful message: No matter what happens, never, ever give up.
