Benveet (Bean) Gill
A certified x-ray technician, Bean experienced an unexpected health event that left her paralyzed from her waist down. As someone who enjoyed staying active, the sudden change left her depressed. She learned to cope by focusing on regaining her strength and athleticism, and opened ReYu Paralysis Recovery Centre to help others experiencing paralysis with intensive workouts and mentorship for those still coping with new injuries. For Bean and for others, having a gym where she can feel comfortable and judgement-free is empowering and builds community.
