Chandra: A World Not Built for Me

Subscribe to Lemonada Premium for Bonus Content

Since losing her limbs, Chandra has had to relearn everything. After a medical emergency caused multi-organ failure, Chandra received several life-saving — and life-altering — amputations. The world beyond her hospital bed was suddenly and completely different, full of challenges she’d never known. Chandra shares with Stephanie just how much her faith has helped her see purpose in her pain, and, together, they explore the beauty that can come when you look for light in the darkness (including Chandra’s time wearing a sash and crown).

If you’d like to help Chandra make it to Ms. Wheelchair America, you can find her GoFundMe here.
