Meet Desirée Ford CO-FOUNDER, RESILIENT SPIRIT
On May 4, 2018, Desirée was a passenger in a horrific two-vehicle crash. Desirée's friend, who was driving the car, perished in the accident along with her dog. Desirée was airlifted to London Health Sciences Centre in critical condition and there she spent 210 days in hospitals and has had 26 surgeries to date with more to come.
This remarkable young woman’s journey is miraculous. After being on life support, dying on the table, not one, but seven times and suffering polytrauma, Desirée overcame the odds and was rehabilitated and out of the hospital a remarkable two years earlier than her doctors expected.
She has lived to tell the story so others can have hope.
With new life and a renewed sense of mission and purpose, Desirée is passionate about helping others overcome their odds so they can strive for a more positive life. As a former professional dancer, performer and singer, Desirée now shares her message of resilience. She inspires audiences with the lessons that she has gained through this journey thus far. Her company, Resilient Spirit co-founded with her mother (Betty) is her mission and her passion as they inspire others to adapt to change, commit to becoming the best version of themselves and to understand that you can do hard things. She is a beacon of hope out of tragedy and a shining light that anything is possible.
