Every week at Sell My Story HQ, we speak to hundreds of women who have an inspiring story to tell – and we always salute their bravery!

One example is Claire, whose story we have placed in this week’s Real People magazine. At 28 weeks pregnant, Claire was walking to the pharmacy when she was hit by a transit van. The impact completely shattered her left arm and leg. The 37-year-old was confined to a wheelchair but miraculously, baby Mia-Mary was born healthy two months later.

Now Claire is finally getting back on her feet and is looking forward to learning to walk again – at the same time as her little girl. Read her amazing story below.
