Cyndi Desjardins was a successful business manager, working in product development and sales management, as well as being a new mom when necrotizing fasciitis (otherwise known as flesh eating disease) entered her life and altered it forever. After five weeks of battling this disease, she awoke to find her hands and feet had been amputated in an effort to save her life.

With a passion for life, she overcame many obstacles in her rehabilitation: recapturing her relationships with her children, learning to walk, swim, and dance again. During her recovery she started a blog to keep family and friends updated on her progress. The inspiring attitude reflected in her writing attracted media attention, and she has made numerous television appearances and feature stories, including visits to the Jeff Probst Show, Anderson Cooper, and CTV The National.

Regardless of the ongoing battle to recapture her life, her main concern is helping others. Learn how she turned a traumatic situation into one of hope and inspiration..... with love and support surrounding her, Cyndi found her true purpose.
