In 2008, Dr. Grace Dammann is a Bay-area physician whose car was hit head on by another driver as she crossed the Golden Gate Bridge. After awaking from a long coma with massive internal injuries and 17 fractures, she spent the next year in rehabilitation facilities. Grace and her former partner and co-parent Fu Schroeder share how occupational therapy supported their journey of recovery, caregiving, and adjusting to life with a disability. Their remarkable story is captured in the award-winning documentary, States of Grace, which follows Grace’s recovery for 4 years after she returns home and is available at https://www.statesofgracefilm.com/.
