Wayne Levesque and Yvette Cenerini are two people who started their lives without disabilities but met with dramatic mishaps that resulted in disabilities that suddenly changed their worlds. Wayne had his arm cut off in an accident at a sawmill and Yvette broke her neck in a swimming accident. But now Wayne is playing guitar and singing and Yvette is quadriplegic but is a groundbreaking visual artist. They share their experiences as people who have continued their art and have used their disabilities to add depth and dimension to their expressions of music and visual arts. These people help Laura discover some secrets about dealing with her own physical challenges.

Also available in French: L'espoir que porte l'art
