Writer and disability champion, Lisa Cox, on changing the way we view disability
Lisa Cox was a young professional woman, a copywriter working in advertising agencies around Australia with the world at her feet when she contracted an infection leaving her with amputations, permanent damage to her brain affecting her speech and memory, over 25% blind, epileptic and other health issues. But seriously, that has not held this woman back!!!! Today Lisa Cox is a disability advocate, writer, motivational speaker, and the author of two books, who fights every day to remedy the underrepresentation and misrepresentation of people living with disabilities in popular culture and our society.
