KNEES
By Dominique Hiscock
Dominique has had multiple sclerosis for several years and is in a wheelchair, but she is determined to walk again. In order to exercise her leg muscles, she gets down on the floor and drags herself across the room on her hands and elbows, using knee pads to cushion her joints. It's a terrific effort, and she's exhausted afterwards.
