Nonprofit group gives Woods Cross woman her energy, freedom back

Nonprofit group Ability Found gives woman her energy, freedom.

After her diagnosis in 1995, McCormick started practicing yoga to preserve core strength and later became certified in special-needs yoga to support others. One of her more recent crusades was to help petition Woods Cross to add curb cutouts for wheelchair access, which she says are great — except for how street unevenness still causes trouble for many.

"The road is too high or it’s broken and it causes you to tip, and it’s not just me…It’s moms walking their kids in strollers," she said.

As she works toward remedying this and other goals, McCormick said she hopes more people will grasp the need to be kind to all — those with disabilities both seen and unseen.

"A disability is an ability, not a disability, if you see it in a different way," she said. "Someday I hope somebody will go back through me and understand that MS has a different face, a different time. People need to be open and kind…and they don’t need to be scared."
