Hi everyone,  Just wanted to give an update.  So much has happened in the past year.  I met with royalty, spoke at a World Toilet Summit on Sanitation and Hygiene, worked with government regulators on changing the building codes to better support people with complex medical, disabilities, the elderly and parents of small children.  Set up a Charity called Accessibili-t.org and developing a social enterprise.  Talked about toileting for people with mobility issues and am now changing the Human Rights Act.  I realised that the only thing limiting me was my belief in myself.  How my body functioned required some interesting strategies for going forward.  But without purpose, I was dying and giving up really wasn't an option.  So have a look at my webpage Accessibili-t.org or Accessibili-t.com.au or Facebook, see how despite pain and problems with my knees/legs/body I am going forward and empowering people globally.

Since the last update, so much has happened.   Kat was a baton bearer for the Queens Baton Relay as part of the Commonwealth Games in Australia.  She managed to propel herself up a hill only a couple of weeks post discharge from the cornary care unit of Royal Brisbane and Women Hospital after spending a week in there after contracting 3 different types of gastroenteritis  (one bactrial) which depleted her body of potassium and magesium.  Requiring 5 days of continuous IV potassium infusions.  Ironically she didn't contract any of these from toilets.  Kat was awarded Queenslands Emerging Leader for International Women's Day by Access Australia and met with the Duchess of Cornwell at the WOW (Women of the World) Conference  a couple of days later.  2 weeks ago she was honoured with the University of Queenslands Create Change - Qld Young Achiever of the Year award. Before flying down to Sydney to meet with the Disability Discrimination Commissioner for the Australian Human Rights Commission  to discuss amending the Discrimination Act and putting forward an amendment to the UN Declaration of People's Rights, to include the Right to Toilet with Dignity.
