Yesterday I had the pleasure and honour of hosting another SWC Charity event at the beautiful Bluewater Room, Heathcote Applecross.

Grateful beyond words for two beautiful souls that shared their stories with us at yesterday’s event, Madison Heady and Kirsten Button

Truly inspirational, both Madi and Kirst shared their powerful stories that were raw, honest, emotional and inspiring.

Their journeys and experiences navigating through life with a disability were from different perspectives, but both showed pure courage, strength and resilience.

The room was filled with so much love, maybe a few tears, and we were all left with our lives richer for having listened to these inspiring women.

Madi HeadySEE ME not MY DISABILITY

Despite her own difficulties and challenges, Madi has a passion to create a business where she is an advocate for other young people living with a disability.
Already Madi has been an inspiration for many young children growing up with a disability and given many parents hope that their children will live fulfilled lives.

Madi has an engaging smile that lit up the room, a big heart and a never give up attitude that becomes infectious to all those around her.

Kirsten Button – Courage doesn’t always roar. Sometimes it is a little voice at the end of the day that says: I will try again tomorrow

Kirsten is the founder of Saba Rose Button Foundation, a teacher and most importantly a busy mumma of 3 gorgeous kids (and a ten week old puppy!)
Kirsten shared with us her daughter Saba’s story, from the raw and emotional life changing event in 2010 that saw their healthy, cheeky fun loving 11 month old baby girl be diagnosed as having cerebral palsy from an Acquired Brain Injury.

Through the challenges Kirst shared with us, we were in awe of her courage, strength and resilience.

Through the SRBF, Kirst is extremely passionate and motivated to make a difference in the lives of those children living with a disability, to help them become the best they can be.
