I wanted to share with you how this idea was formulated to create Advanced Freedom. Throughout my childhood and teens, my absolute favourite thing to do was swimming. For many years I watched as young adults my age were enjoying themselves in the water. I didn't feel this enjoyment was inclusive of disabled people.
I was inspired to make a change so all disabled people did not feel excluded from an activity that was so enjoyable. I wanted and needed to feel the freedom and liberation I once felt before Multiple Sclerosis ravaged my body. I thought to myself, why shouldn't disabled people get that same feeling, if only for a short time?
This was when Advanced Freedom was born! I really loved one piece swimsuits, but was relegated to purchase a tankini because it was a lot more accessible when undressing or going to the washroom. Its difficult for everyone let alone a disabled individual.
