    From Radio to Television to Corporate Offices to the exhilaration and loneliness of an entrepreneur’s chair.

    What Doesn’t Kill You Makes You Stronger

    What Doesn’t Kill You Makes You Stronger

    Paula Carney’s life changed one Friday morning at 8:30. 
     She was driving north to Barrie on highway 400, had just passed Innisfil Beach Road and in an instant it happened. Her vehicle smashed into the back of a stopped gravel truck which itself had just collided with a vehicle in front.
     It was a 33-vehicle pile-up and with more victims than rescuers could attend to. When that happens, the ones most-likely to not make it, are “left until the end,” as one rescuer later told her.
     Paula was left until the end. In the cold, in her vehicle, in shock, and in pain.
     Those heroic paramedics did get to her, brought her to the hospital and with the extraordinary skill of doctors and nurses in Toronto, and an unexplainable will to survive… Paula made it.
     Today if you ask her, that accident was one of the best things to have ever happened to her – and her children are living proof.
