Description

Four years ago, Rachelle became paralyzed in a freak swimming pool accident at her bachelorette party. Her story garnered quick attention from the media, where she gained notoriety as the “paralyzed bride”. Although her wedding day was delayed, Rachelle eventually married Chris Chapman. Like many people with a spinal cord injury, she worked hard to rebuild her life and find some level of “normalcy”. The media continued to follow her story, and Rachelle has appeared on TV with Katie Couric, had her story featured in Cosmopolitan and People magazines, and writes her own blog for the Huffington Post. She just had her first book published, The Promise: A Tragic Accident, A Paralyzed Bride, and the Power of Love, Loyalty and Friendship.
